Every home should have a first aid kit with essential tools for medical safety. First aid emergencies can arise at any time and could require any number of different items. For cuts and bruises, sprains and breaks preparation can eliminate or minimize pain, infections or other complications.

Here are some things that you should make sure to include in your kit.

  • Bandages
  • Ice packs
