Emergency Medical Supplies

I have medical supplies stored including at least 6 months of our prescription drugs, antibiotics, several large bottles of antiseptic, a pair of crutches and knee immobilizer (long story), pain killers (same story), various over-the-counter medications, extra bandages, Epson Salts, etc. I also grow some medicinal herbs.

I keep a large, First Responder bag packed and ready for use in the same closet as our BOBs.  I have smaller first aid kits in my BOB and Truck Emergency Kit.

Here is my inventory list of my large, First Responder bag.  I purchased this bag as a kit, but then added many additional items.  I added the suture supplies after attending an emergency medical class taught by some awesome guys–a general surgeon, a chiropractor, and a dentist.  It included instruction and practice in suturing.

I include some items that exceed my first aid skills–my Red Cross class didn’t get into using scalpels.  I read some advice that struck home.  If the SHTF, you may find a medical professional with the ability to provide assistance, but not have the tools or supplies.  For example, my closest neighbor is a nurse.  Therefore, I stock medical supplies.

Also check out these posts from my list of reference documents.  They have some excellent information.
