As the year draws to a close, you’re likely focusing on the holidays and making plans for the upcoming year. Now is also a good time to make sure that you have essential first-aid supplies in your home, business, and vehicle.

Why You Should Check Your First Aid Kits 

Having a first aid kit in your house, workplace, or car can make it possible to respond quickly if someone else gets injured or becomes ill. In some cases, receiving first aid promptly can save a person’s life.

Of course, a first aid kit is only as good as the supplies it contains. If someone looks for a bandage, a cold pack, or something else and discovers that what’s needed isn’t there, that will delay treatment. An injured person might have to suffer unnecessarily, and the individual’s condition might worsen while someone searches for supplies or races to the nearest store or pharmacy.

That’s why you should periodically go through all your first aid kits and take stock. You might find that you’re out of certain supplies or that you’re running low on some of the essentials. If so, you can order replacements. 

You should also check the expiration dates on your first aid supplies. Many of the items in your kits, such as pain relievers and antibiotic ointment, have expiration dates. After those dates, products can become less effective. If you take a little time at the end of the year to check the dates on all your first aid supplies, you can make a list of everything that needs to be replaced and get it all taken care of at once. That way, you won’t have to worry about it next year.

Where to Order Essentials for Your First Aid Kits

1st Aid Supplies offers first aid kits and cabinets that are suitable for homes, businesses, and vehicles. We sell kits in various sizes to fit in different spaces and to suit the needs of different numbers of people. 

You can also purchase supplies separately. For example, you can buy assorted bandages, boxes of over-the-counter medications, and other essentials. If you have multiple first aid kits, you can purchase supplies in bulk and divide them between the kits so that they’ll all be fully stocked.
