Hey guys, This semester in college i have had the luck of enrolling in a Wilderness First Responder course at my college. The more in depth we get into this class, the more I feel naked without a more comprehensive FAK. Infact I was out both my FAK's because i had lent my sister my gear for hiking and wanted to make sure she had decent stuff (shes a novice). Anyways, just the lack of having gloves on my person (the most basic necessary need of BSI) was having me bugging, so i put together a decent FAK in a case that now is residing in my bag. Current Contents: 5x9 trauma pad various gauze pads - 4x4, 3x4, 3x3, 2x2 gauze rolls bandaids (not many, i consider them pretty useless) ace bandage 2 traingular bandages various meds - antihistamine, tylenol, ibuprofen, 1-2 doses of cough/cold meds couple of cough drops small package of q-tips tweezers small scissors small SAK - never used med tape alchohol and antiseptic wipes butterfly bandages probably some more stuff snuggled in What i will probably add: small bic lighter another 5x9 sharpie (R, Blk, Slv) chem stick sam splint small notebook right now its in a crappy first aid kit bag - however i got it for $6 and it was pretty decent for the price, although threw away most of the innards like the 8 million bandaids that i find i don't ever need or use, and plus cheap bandaids are crap. any suggestions though? 90% of the time I'm in an urban environment, and pretty close to a hospital. however with my new training, i can't help but want to have my gear with me so if a situation arises i can be ready. If i was going into the woods i would probably alter my gear a bit, and add in my heatsheet, etc. Also I am planning on putting together a much more trauma related kit for the winter time, because i end up on the highway a fair amount of the time, and im up north, so in the wintertime, there can literally be dozens of accidents, and i want to be ready to respond. So i guess thats part II, winter time emergency kit to help respond to traumas. and where do you guys get your FAK supples for cheap? Thanks, Stay Frosty, JohnG.
