I’m a firm believer of preparing before you need it. In an emergency, you do not want to be scrambling trying to find things. Have something you can rely on and its easy to access. In an emergent, ALWAYS protect yourself. Always assess the scene before doing anything. Also, as a default…. Gloves are a MUST! Have extra pairs handy in glove compartments and at home.
Living in California I took earthquake preparedness classes, Red Cross first aid and CPR classes. Wouldn’t matter where I live, I want that awareness in skills for my own self. I don’t rely on a belief someone will save me. I want to know to empower myself.
I take seriously and want skills to take care of myself so I invest the time to make better decisions, like having quality kits handy and readily available. Along with the knowledge, I make a point to these quality supplies available at my home and in my car.
Impressed by the Live The Creed (formally known as WH Tactical) gear. I picked up this kit a few years backs. Still have and live it. Got my sister and brother quality kits, too.
I gave the EDC medkits to both siblings. For me, I bought a Get Home Alive (GHA) Medical Kit. Really pleased with this kit and showcase highlights of it in this video.
