    DKR Interesting ideas, interesting stories

    Based on feedback, I have modified this post to suggest folks start with the AM Red Cross std FAK contents, than add as they get additional training.

    Red Cross FAK contents
    The RC rommends that all first aid kits for a family of four include the following:
    • 2 absorbent compress dressings (5 x 9 inches)
    • 25 adhesive bandages (assorted sizes)
    • 1 adhesive cloth tape (10 yards x 1 inch)
    • 5 antibiotic ointment packets (approximately 1 gram)
    • 5 antiseptic wipe packets
    • 2 packets of aspirin (81 mg each)
    • 1 blanket (space blanket)
    • 1 breathing barrier (with one-way valve)
    • 1 instant cold compress
    • 2 pair of nonlatex gloves (size: large)
    • 2 hydrocortisone ointment packets (approximately 1 gram each)
    • Scissors
    • 1 roller bandage (3 inches wide)
    • 1 roller bandage (4 inches wide)
    • 5 sterile gauze pads (3 x 3 inches)
    • 5 sterile gauze pads (4 x 4 inches)

    Got this down. Have a Doctor in the group, he buys the medical supplies - including fully stocked STOMP bags, IV kits, everything. We also have a trained Nurse and Corpsman in the group as well. Everyone gets certified and trained in First Responder, First Aid, Intensive Trauma First Aid, and CPR annually.

    Great info though!

    Best medic I can boast is a trauma room nurse. Male, huge, and in seriously good shape, physically and FAK equipped. (He can hump my ammo stock for both of us. Good shot, too.)
