Choosing the Best First Aid Box

from:

Whether you have a trip planned or you simply want to be prepared at home, your choice in a first aid box will make a difference. Though most people don't realize it, your first aid equipment doesn't just need to be available, but it needs to stay safe as well. By finding a first aid box that will keep your bandages and other tools sterile and dry, you can increase the lifespan of your first aid supplies, while also keeping them on hand when you need them the most.

For Your Home Kit

If you're looking for a first aid box for home, you can be a little more flexible in terms of the size and the shape – so long as you have room. A larger, watertight box is best as it will allow for a number of things to be stored in it, while also giving the tools a safe and dry location. You can find these kinds of boxes at wilderness supply stores in the camping equipment sections or you might also be able to find them through medical supply stores and retailers. In a pinch, an airtight plastic bag or pouch can also work for your home needs.

For Travel

When you are looking for a first aid box for traveling, you need to consider the portability as well as the security of the box itself. If you can't carry this box easily, chances are good that you won't carry it at all – and that's not going to help in a medical emergency. Try to find a smaller box that you can cram only the essentials into; similar to the box you might keep in your home. This way, it can be placed into the top of a hiking pack for easy access without taking up too much room.

Many outdoorsy folks like a more flexible first aid box that's more like a bag than a sturdy box. Drawstring bags and stuff sacks are a good choice, but if you will want to be certain that your bandages and other dry supplies are protected with a plastic baggie.

For Your Car

If you live in an area with varying weather conditions, your first aid box in your car might require a bit more gear – blankets, extra water, etc. For this kind of kit, you might want to invest in a smaller plastic box that's not necessarily watertight, but simply large enough to store everything that you need.

No matter what kind of first aid box you buy, make sure you fill it with the essentials – bandages, antiseptic cleansers, signaling equipment and some food and water. When you need help, you should be ready for anything.
