First Aid Kit

In the event of a disaster, local emergency responders may be overwhelmed and response for your call for assistance could be delayed. To be prepared for a disaster, you should prepare or buy a First Aid Kit. There are many vendors that you can

purchase a fully stocked First Aid Kit or you can prepare one of your own. The

supplies needed are available at most drug and discount stores.
