Survival Tip of the Day: First Step - First Aid

Updated: Mar 3

You never know when you may have nobody around to help you... or when your loved one will need your help. Knowing the basics of first aid could save a life. It's great to have a fully-stocked trauma kit. Even if you don't know how to use all of the elements within it, there may be someone nearby who does in the event of an accident. But we challenge you to learn more about first aid and how to respond in times of crisis.


Everyone should have a first aid kit! This is the one we keep in our car. Basic first-aid kits are around $10!


Here are the stats:


90% of drivers do not have first aid in their vehicle - do you?

25% of weather-related crashes occur on snowy/icy pavement.

30% of drivers have never even checked to see if they have emergency equipment in their car! (Car jacks, tire irons, a spare tire.) Don't be in this 30%! Check today, don't procrastinate!


Other things to keep in your vehicle:

  • Flashlight

  • Jacket

  • Gloves

  • Hat (80% of your body heat is lost through your head! Fingers are next)

  • Window breaker (a lifesaver in vehicle submersion situations)

  • Jump bag

  • Pocket knife

  • A way to make fire (matches, lighter, etc.)

 

Fun fact: We teach survival classes! Sign up for our newsletter to learn more about upcoming classes, and peruse our events page to sign up for hands-on training.
