    A first aid kit can come in handy when you least expect it. They do not take up much room and are not very heavy therefore they should be an essential item packed in any backpack along with other supplies, or carried along on hunting and fishing trips. A first aid kit can be kept inside of a small box that's traditionally seen that's marked first aid so that in an emergency situation anybody will know that that is where to turn to to find the proper things to use. Other ways first aid kits can be carried efficiently are inside of survival knives. Some gun stocks are made with hollow compartments that can house small items such as those found in the first aid kit as well. Fishing poles also often have hollowed out backends where items can be inserted to use in an emergency.

    It is a great idea if you are an avid outdoorsman to utilize the benefits of the age-old fanny pack. These are 100% great ways to make sure you have a first-aid kit with you at all times. Your first aid kit is more than just medicine it can be your essential survival kit during an emergency situation. Beyond the typical medications and vitamins found in a first aid kit, you can go as far as to add things such as a small solar powered charger so that you may charge a device such as a phone or a walkie talkie. With science and technology today, many things have become micro-sized. Things that you would not have thought about in the past can now be utilized in a modern survival kit today. They even have credit cards that are multifunction tools in emergency situations. So if you don't have an emergency first aid kit put one together. Have one ready for your home or office as well as one in your car and for when you go venturing into the outdoors. Being prepared is more than a Boy Scout motto it's the smart thing to do.

    As I now spend a lot of time in my vehicle or close to it I also carry trauma packs in the bottom inside tray of each door!
    Inside tray of each door actually carries a small fire extinguisher a 600ml stainless steel water bottle a trauma kit and 2m of paracord!
    If you have a motor vehicle accident and are trapped in your seat a FAK/Trauma kit in the BOOT is useless!

    I have heaps extra but not usually in vehicle! I see no point carrying too much around
    but then again It is ready to put in the back at short notice!

    For me vehicle wise it is a vehicle accident or flooding!
    My vehicle is jacked up 4in on big tyres so I can ford water up to chest height easy so long as it is not swiftwater!
    and swiftwater up to 600mm
    As well as the above stuff I have a stuffbag with 100m x10mm white poly anchor rope ( floats and is hi vis ) for water rescues!
    Used twice in last year!

With truck running i can run a welder off my inverter again the thing is to be ready notcrap i wish i had that

    I have a trailer with large battery bank and inverter plus generator!
    I have no need on a regular basis so it stays home most of the time!

    Flooding is common here and idiots in little cars getting stuck

    You must work at rescue and recovery or some such?
