    Improvised Medical Supplies

    Post by CBCERT on Mon Feb 15, 2016 1:53 pm

    I have several 1st aid kits in various locations, all equipped with the basics. Also two trauma kits with more advanced supplies. But let's face it. In a real disaster our 1st aid kit may become depleted very quickly in our efforts to help our family and our neighbors. Unless we live very close by, we most likely will not be able to get to our CERT trailer to restock supplies. So let's think of ways to improvise 1st Aid supplies from things around the house or can be gotten cheaply (beforehand). I've started a list here. Please help me think of a few more.
