This is incredibly thorough and well written. I'm amazed at the people on this board who choose to crap on good information. Please ignore them and know that your information is valuable to the rest of us.

Good post, I also encourage folks to have more than one kit, that way to don't lose everything if one bag is lost/damaged.

I'd like to make a few points, if I may. I worked for several years in a military ER and performed field medic duty as well, have EMT training/licensed as well. Just mentioning this so you can see my viewpoint.


I would encourage TRAINING first before getting anything past a basic kit. Add items as you get training. Then you will be trained to use what is in the bag.

NEVER carry drugs of any kind in anything other than the original container. I have the one use foil packs of all OTC items. No need to have Officer Friendly dirty his boot on your face when he/she sees 'drugs' in your bag.

Use of items like sutures, airway management devices and the like require licensure in most States. Check your local Good Samaritan laws BEFORE you add an item. In some jurisdictions, carry of prescription item may net an arrest. All require practice to be of any real use.

Helping others. Go ahead, just be be certain you know and understand your local Good Samaritan laws. Don't take anyone's word this - look it up for yourself.

Having a first aid kit is a smart thing to have at home and in the car.
Ensure you keep track of expiry dates.
Take recurring training. Better yet - join a CERT team or other organization that offers free/low cost recurring training and get hands on experience as well.

Start small, learn, get hands on practice.

Last item
While I don't have a cervical collar or airway items in my FAK, I do have a otoscope - for looking at ears. DR Mom makes a good low cost unit.

A BP cuff and stethoscope are good items to have for follow-on care. See what your health care provider recommends.

Thanks for the post, good to see the conversation going...

Isn't there several threads on this in the health/FA section?

I know several EMTs and medics have posted before.

Overall, the OP is great, but I must disagree intensely about his recommendation against using clotting agents like Quick Clot or the even better Celox. These products have saved many, many lives, and not just soldiers on the battlefield. Just because a product is a stop-gap measure does not invalidate its usefulness. What if the disaster you're dealing with is a car accident and paramedics are 30 minutes away? Clotting agents can be lifesavers in such instances. They are not permanent solutions, but they can absolutely buy time.

For the record, pain killers are just stop- gap measures too.

Agree Willthrill - would suggest generally using the gauze / bandages that Celox & Quickclot have on the market versus granular forms. These will stop bleeding but don't allow as much of the clotting agent into the wound which later has to be cleaned.

Excellent thread...top notch in fact.
I have put together a fairly comprehensive kit..but am lacking some major injury meds..they are a little tricky to source..pain meds especially..is this the same in the US ?..
I have little to no experience on sourcing them..any ideas.
Im in England..

Why is this a survivalist first aid kit? Seems just like a regular one to me.

Because it was posted here? Same reason so many think daily activities that anyone would do is also called "prepping". Same reason you need a different bag with a different name and 3 or 4 letter acronym for it depending on where you are at or what your plan is. It's because prepping and/or survival is a modern "hobby".
