In case of an emergency, if the injury is very severe or life threatening, call 9-1-1 first!
Your first aid kit should  contain extra supplies of any prescription medicine you or anyone in the family is taking.
Finally, keep a list of doctors and other emergency numbers in your first aid kit, for easy access to this important information.
Emergencies often happen unexpectedly, so it’s important to be prepared and take the steps necessary to insure you have the supplies you need in a medical situation.
One of the non-negotiables on our To Do List is to build a quality first aid kit and do a first aid course that covers the potential accidents or illness that can happen on a sailing boat.

More than having bandages and some antibiotics, these kits come often come with rubbing alcohol to sterilize wounds and kills germs, gauze pads, and handy tools like tweezers. Keeping extra (fully charged) cell phone batteries here is also a good idea if you are traveling or have an emergency while in the car, away from a phone charger.


A simple first-aid kit that’s easily accessible and portable with all the essential items can make all the difference and prove to be indispensable for providing timely medical treatment. But I would rather know what to do and have the equipment than not, particularly when we could be a long way from someone coming to help us. Store it in a dry place and make sure to replace used or outdated contents on a regular basis.
