First Aid Kit

Home/Resources/First Aid Kit

If it’s one thing that my friends know about me is that I always manage to hurt myself no matter where I go or what I do.  I’ve started carrying around band aids everywhere just in case. It’s not a bad practice to start when it comes to your events too. Accidents do happen. According to the Canadian Red Cross there are things you should always have on hand, in your home, office or reception area.

  • Emergency Numbers: EMS/Poison Control/Local Police station
  • Sterile gauze/dressings in a variety of sizes for covering wounds
  • Tape: Both medical and everyday use
  • Various sizes and shapes of bandages to place over dressed wounds
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Safety pins
  • Instant ice packs
  • Non-latex gloves
  • Flashlights
  • Batteries
  • Disinfectant wipes and soaps
  • Pencil and paper
  • Emergency blanket/heat blanket
  • Eye patches
  • Thermometer
  • Pocket mask
  • Coins for payphone
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Pain relievers (Tylenol or Advil)
  • Matches

Make sure any medication you store isn’t expired and is either over the counter or prescribed by a doctor.  You as an organizer should have information about your volunteers just in case something happens.  Having a volunteer on hand who is CPR and First Aid certified is very helpful as well.
