First Aid Kit.
« on: June 08, 2010, 07:35:19 PM »

Today, I put together a first aid kit for my truck.  I cut my self pretty bad today changing out a whirlpool dryer motor. ( hand slipped as the blower impeller let loose and wailed the blower housing.)  All I had was electrical tape and a paper towel.   I needed to get a comprehensive kit for my truck.

Here's what I put in there.

1. Sissors
2. Band Aids
3. Hydrogen Peroxide
4. Closure strips
5. Liquid Band Aid
6. Burn Cream
7. Antibiotic Ointment
8. Waterproof tape.
9. Antiseptic Wipes
10. Gauze
11. Ibuprofen
12. Alcohol Prep Pads
13. Iodine Prep Pads
14. GE Hand sanitizer

I think I got it covered for most minor injury's while fixing appliance's.  Anything else I should put in there?

Superglue. I've had to use it a couple of times to close up a real bad gash. Stings to high heaven when applied, but it gets the job done if you don't mind the glue bead under the skin.

 I always carry the Rambo first aid kit. A needle and thread, a tourniquet and a bone saw (a hacksaw will do)
