Emergency Supplies – The “Band-aids” of the 3 B’s


I have been thinking about Emergency Preparedness lately in the way of basic supplies. These are some of this things that I have been putting back. Obviously, these are extra supplies, not all that I have. Please comment if you have suggestions of items to add next. I would like to be deeper in certain categories, but this is a start.

    Today, I went out an bought a bunch of the off-brand Hydrocortizone for the kit as well as more bandages and atheletes foot sprays. You may laugh, but if your feet get eat up, you can be in real trouble quick. I have been looking on-line for Triange bandages for Arm Slings and other stuff like that. I also looked at Celox (quick clotting powder for open wounds & holes). It is expensive, but would be worth it if you ever needed it.

    @centervilletn I would feel kind of funny about taking Cow drugs, but I guess in a pinch, you will do a lot of things that you wouldn’t normally do. I would assume that the companies that produce those probably produce the Human variety and have to live up to certain safety standards.

    @EIGHTIESmusicguy Good idea. I have saved some leftover prescrips as for just in case. I forgot to mention having a book “When There is no Doctor”. No kit is complete without it. Also, “The Doctor’s Book of Home Remedies” is a great resource.

    4 or 5 drops of hydrogen peroxide can help with ear irritations and even minor ear infections, as long as it is caught in the begginning, if allowed to go, then you need antibiotics for that. We should still have antibiotics stored anyway, regardless of what the docs tell us. If you have strep and there are no meds available you could actually die from it. Get antibiotics.
