The dust has settled and the First 72 Hours have passed. Now we concentrate on what to do in, and how to plan for, the long term via Prudent Prepping.
Last week, my Voodoo Tactical Trauma Kit arrived late... too late for me to unpack and look it over before deadline. This week I fix that by reviewing the contents.
This is how the pack and the contents look, fresh out of the wrapper -- everything came in a Ziploc bag. I will be moving things into separate bags as soon as I figure what I want to keep together.
Here are the contents, spread out for easy viewing from left to right.
- Small antiseptic items, pain relievers and one pair of gloves.
- Ace-type bandage
- Gauze pads
- Two rolls tape
- Triangle bandage w/ safety pins
- Dyna-Stopper Pad with extra gauze
- Eye pad
- 4 Dermacea Abdominal Pads
Not shown is an included one-page instruction sheet which covers very basic First Aid
All the pads not already in plastic packaging will be put into bags, with the entire kit possibly going into an extra-heavy duty bag that I've salvaged from my work.
The very first additions to this kit are going to be Tylenol, Ibuprofen, a tube of triple antibiotic, butterfly band aids and single use eye wash. Everything is a name brand and easily searchable for exact replacements, when or if the time comes to resupply used items.
From comments made to my original post to the Blue Collar Prepping Facebook page, a tourniquet is the next important bit to add here. Since I have no idea what type or style tourniquet, I need to ask for suggestions on what to buy.
- Look for bargains and sales to score deals
