First Aid Kit

You should have a first aid kit at home and in your vehicle.  It must be revised frequently to ensure that it is complete and that medications have not expire.  You can buy a first aid kit at any department or drug store, or you may do one yourself.  The content should be kept dry in a closed box and out of reach of little ones.  This is a general guideline as provided by the American Heart Association.
