When it comes to putting together a first aid emergency supply kit, there are some basic things I would recommend anyone to have. These are things that you may think are not super important or are not a necessity, but when the situation and time calls for them, you will be glad you have these items on hand. One thing that I like to have in all of my first aid kits is some basic hand sanitizer. Don't forget Band-Aids and bandages along with adhesive tape as well. An ointment such as an antibacterial ointment or triple antibiotic ointment is also an essential item in anyone's first aid kit. A box of strike-anywhere waterproof matches will also come in great handy when you least expect it. A thermometer to help monitor a body's temperature is another useful item. Pre-packaged aspirin and pre-packaged Tylenol along with a small bottle of Eugenol oil is another great idea. Making sure to have items that can withstand temperate climates as well as keeping these items fresh and within their expiration dates is always a suggested step to take. Keeping a granola bar, raisins, and bottled water with or near your first-aid kit is also a great idea, and it's something that oftentimes people will overlook. In a situation that requires first aid often times food and water would be a big help.
