Adult first aid kit contents except medications

In our post on the various categories of first aid supplies, I mentioned the Adult Personal First Aid Kit. This post is about my suggestions on what to include in a emergency bag first aid kit for an adult.

Every emergency bag needs a First Aid Kit. This kit has more variety, additional bandaging and dressing options, as well as a variety of individual dose medications to handle most of what comes your way in an emergency so you can help your family or others you may encounter.

This list is a starting point. Adapt it as needed. Customize the contents and make sure the owner knows how and when to use all the supplies. Some older teens may also be better served with this Adult Personal First Aid Kit instead of the Teen Personal First Aid Kit.

Bag Options

There are a number of different options for carrying your first aid kit. You’ll want to have some compartmentalization available so you can find items quickly.

The bag that comes with this kit has several compartments for organization, but it is rather basic. Adding the separate pouch for medications with its own sections will help you find items quickly.
