  • First Aid Gear

    I am putting together a vehicle first aid kit, and I was wondering what first aid equipment you use the most. I have the basics covered (bandages, gauze, tourniquet, gloves, antiseptic), but I wanted to know if there is anything out of the ordinary that you have found to be useful. Thank you for your help.

    I have an "Individual Patrol Officer Kit" in my active shooter / bail out bag.

    You can find it online at North American Rescue

    It includes a combat tourniquet, trauma dressing, Quickclot, and gloves.

    I've read several studies since the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan started, stating that you have as much as a 65% increase of surviving a gsw if you can apply a tourniquet within minutes of being shot.

    Of course it's not an everyday item, but it's definitely something you may want to have on hand.

      Blow out kits are crucial, but the most used would be bandaids (cartoon ones for kids), BC Powder, Neosporin, Immodium, pepto, Tweezers, a bottle of sterile saline.

        small bottle of bourbon, granola bars, condoms, breath mints/mouthwash, a sharp knife, some rope and handcuffs, sanitizing lotion, a little cash, jumper cables, viagra, a bottle of water and a kerambit.

          Be careful with tourniquets. You should not be throwing them on any wound unless you know what you're doing. I stock our kits mainly with bleeding control supplies and ambu bags (bag-valve mask). If it's a CPR or rescue breathing situation, the ambu will keep the officer from having to do any mouth-to-mouth breathing.
