    Hi Gary. When we had our "breakfast meeting" at the Cafe in Glossop, I thought the ambulance blanket was an especially good idea, especially since you told me you'd lost a good few coats over the years that have gone with the casualty to hospital.
    I DID put a kit in my car, after our USN meet based around a Stanley Tool Organizer tote, but as Im always doing, it came out again to be tweaked, isn't finished yet and hasn't gone back in the boot yet.

    I stopped to help at a pedestrian RTA a year or two back and (other than gloves) the foil blanket was the only thing I had that was of the slightest use. (Head injury, casualty just about conscious, did primary and secondary survey, kept her still, warm, responding and calm, and waited anxiously for something with blue lights on it to show up!)

    The cloth blankets are probably better but I haven't the space to spare, and if I'm going to wave goodbye to something then I'd rather it was £2 than about £15

    I here you about losing the blankets. LOL. I dealt with a fentanyl OD in our parking lot a couple years ago. I had one of those grey wool emergency blankets and the paramedics took it with them when they loaded the patient into the weewoo buggy. I realized it as I was packing my kit away after clearing the scene. :bye:
