The Best Places for Emergency Kits

Aug 17, 2007
Let us face it, people, who keeps their first aid kit in a place where it can easily be taken out when needed? Do you remember where you last placed your emergency medical kit? Was it the garage? The bathroom? Dining room? Or was it in the backyard? Anyway, the kit is one of the things that is most displaced in the home by the family members. As first aid kits are very important to be available in each household, it is very important that they should be located in easy to remember and easy to reach places during emergencies, be it grave or mild emergencies. It should be in a place where everybody can remember where it is and remember to place it back in that same location.

One good tip about the kits is that it is helpful if you have different kits for the home, the car and the boat, if you have one. For home use, try having several first aid kits located strategically in places where accidents are likely to happen for example the kitchen, garage, dining room, bathroom, and the workshop.

If your family is one of the families that enjoy road trips, then it is important that you carry a first aid kit with all the necessary things needed for the trip in your vehicle. A First aid emergency kit for the car is best kept in the glove compartment. If you are camping out, it is also important to include in your kits a cellular phone because if the accident is way too serious for what you have in your first aid kits then a cellular phone will come in handy. You should have access to 911 or other emergency services to help you in case what you have in your first aid kit is not enough for the accident. This tip of including a cellular phone in your first aid kits is also recommended for those who use boats regularly.

The battery for your cellular phones should have enough power to last the trip. It is better if you bring extra batteries or cellular phone chargers to use in case the trip is going to be a long one. The Federal law imposed last year has a directive when it comes to cellular phones in that it should be able to contact 911 anytime that a person wants to dial the number in case of emergencies.
