Car First Aid Kit Updated

Car First Aid Kit Updated

I revised my car first aid kit. I removed items, added others and changed the organization. I’m very happy with the results.
The kit is housed in a Condor Rip-Away EMT pouch. The first aid manual is in a Condor Pocket Pouch that I attached to the rip away bag. The manual is First Aid, Survival, and CPR: Home and Field Pocket Guide by Shirley A. Jones.

    I wonder if a bigger bag (or like one of those camping toiletry bags/rolls) would make for a less messy whole. As it looks like a trauma kit that sort of grew out of it’s bag to include ever more things (useful things for sure, esp. if the kit is supposed to be a car medical kit) … So maybe that could be a thing to look out for, as far as content goes, looks pretty complete.

    Over here in the Netherlands it’s actually required by law (i think) to have a medical kit in your car, either the car comes standard with one, or you can buy car kits off the shelve that have the required content.

    I’m always so amazed, you are so thorough and complete with everything.

    GREAT video and kit. I run an IFAK (individual) and a VFAK (vehicle) kit. Both are primarily trauma but the VFAK has a few boo-boo items included. I humbly offer the following…

    Unpack your CAT. I recommend version 2 in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CSECJQPJmLw

    Add a vehicle escape tool: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IefSTdyj67A

    I recommend a headlamp. If there ever was a time you need both hands free it’s while administering first aid.

    Add a couple of oven bags. You never know when you need a bag due to hyperventilation, traumatic amputation, or multiple chest wounds larger than can be covered with a standard chest seal (shotgun blast or multiple knife woulds).

    I know you’re smarter than the average prepper, but please stress monitoring the shelf life and expiration dates of all contents. The problem with FAKs is we pack them then forget about them. Many items must be rotated to make sure they’re viable when needed.

    Patriot Nurse would be proud… thanks for all you do. 😉

    Brilliant, thanks

    Your comment about organization hit home for me. If I was in the situation you described, my kit would look identical – pulling out most of the kit to find what I wanted. Keeping the kit tidy and labeled makes a lot of sense – definitely a to-do for me.

    We’re did you get the actual bag itself and a great job putting it together

  14. Donna Roberts on June 23, 2022 at 9:58 pm

    Awesome kit! I was wondering, is the lavender oil pure essential oil or is a carrier oil mixed with it?

    I love the attention to every day preps. Alcohol prep wipes are one of the items that I find the most "emergency" uses for

    i keep a fairly robust kit in my truck. it’s geared more for major bleeding (gunshot/knife wounds…since i carry both every day) so i have things for that as well as for other, smaller injuries.

    large gauze pads
    medium gauze pads
    small gauze pads
    rolled gauze
    abd pads
    non-stick gauze
    homeostatic gauze
    tourniquet
    isreali bandage
    ace bandage
    steri-strips
    small bandages
    alcohol wipes
    antiseptic wipes
    sting relief wipes
    antibiotic ointment
    burn gel
    benadryl ointment
    a container with several types of otc medication
    nitrile gloves (3 pair)
    n95 mask (2)
    space blanket (2)
    small, biohazard waste bag (2)
    cpr mask
    medical shears
    permanent marker

    it’s all in a bag that can be accessed quickly and used efficiently. i keep the gloves, n95 mask, spr mask, blankets, and biohazard bags in an external pocket/pouch so they can be gotten to quickly. then, the shears are stored in a loop on the exterior of the bag. after that, everything else is stored basically as how it would be used…wound cleaning/dressing…isreali bandage…tourniquet…marker
    all of the other non-life-threatening-related items are stored in a separate compartment (medication, ointments/gels, wipes, etc.)

    It is better / the BEST !!! I’m going to check my car first aid kit now 🙂 Thanks

  18. Thomas Nugent on June 23, 2022 at 10:06 pm

    Looks like a great kit to me. Thank you very much

    I have pre filled normal saline syringes (the kInd used for flushing IVs) in my first aid kit. Irrigates wounds well and don’t have to find available water source.

    This is a very well thought out first aid kit. And I don’t think it hurts to have some of the more advanced gear in a kit that may be able to be used by a trained professional. Mainly I just keep a boo-boo get in my car. Thanks for sharing my friend.
