FAQ

What if I don’t know basic first aid?

All of the kits come with a First Aid instruction guide that you can study. Be sure to have some basic first aid knowledge so read up on this. At the beach, approach the lifeguard station for guided assistance.


Do I need to replace my first aid kit?

The medicines and ointments in the kit have an expiration date. Be sure to check this so you can just replace the items that have expired. Also, whenever you use bandages, try to replenish what you used. This is cheaper than buying a new kit.


Which one is best for me?

Are you traveling solo? Choose a lightweight pack. Have a car? Choose a more complete kit that you can just leave at the back of your car. Going camping? Choose a kit with basic survival items such as matches, and food and water rations.
