Planning | First Aid

Being prepared for simple first aid and for serious injury is a big part of the preparedness community. It is a lot more than just medication and bandages, it is knowledge and experience.

First aid training is one of the best thing one can add to their prepping portfolio.  Knowing what to do for scrapes and bruises, cuts and breaks and even gunshot wounds can give your loved ones the added time they may need to save their life. Once you have the knowledge, now you need the gear.
