Essential Items for Your At-Home First Aid Kit

Minor emergencies – a burn while cooking, an insect bite in the backyard, or a bump on the head – may occur at any time within your home. A properly stocked first aid kit can help you address these situations with confidence, so you and your loved ones can feel better faster.

We recommend stocking these health essentials:

  • 2 absorbent dressings, each measuring 5″ x 9″
  • 25 adhesive bandages in a range of sizes, including strip and butterfly bandages*
  • 1 roll of adhesive cloth tape measuring 1″ by 10 yards*
  • 5 antibiotic ointment packets, measuring 1 gram total*
  • 5 antiseptic wipe packets
  • 2 aspirin packs
  • Pain and fever medications
  • Antihistamine medication
  • Decongestant
  • Anti-nausea medications
  • Antacids
  • Laxatives
  • 1 emergency blanket
  • 1 breathing barrier with a one-way valve*
  • 1 instant cold compress
  • 2 pairs of large non-latex gloves
  • 2 hydrocortisone ointment packets, each measuring 1 gram*
  • Bandage rolls
  • 10 sterile gauze pads
  • A gauze roll
  • Eye shield or pad
  • 1 aluminum finger splint
  • Sterile cotton balls and swabs

When you stock your own first aid kit, be sure to store all materials inside a secure tub, tote bag, or tool box. Additionally ensure it’s in an easily-accessible location – preferably, one in your home and a second inside your car – where young children cannot reach.

Remember, even a well-stocked first aid kit is no replacement for the expertise of your physician. And, in the case of a true emergency, seek medical attention as quickly as possible.
