Guide to Preparedness Now - 1st Aide Trauma Kit

Create two Trauma Kits - keep one for every-day use and put the second one in your shelter.   Do not "borrow" supplies from the one in your shelter.

Trauma kits are meant to deal with major injuries and keep someone alive until medical care can be reached. Hopefully you never need one.  It is better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have a trauma kit.
