OC Safety is dedicated to providing everyone who wants to improve their basic health care skills with exceptional CPR classes in Orange County. We have helped families, doctors, nurses, paramedics, businesses, and many other community members respond appropriately to situations requiring first aid. Providing great first aid begins with a kit full of the right supplies.

Your First Aid Kit Essentials

Building a basic first aid kit is simple. These are among the most important staples that a general kit should include:

  • Sterile gauze pads
  • Burn dressings
  • Antiseptic wipes
  • Antibiotic cream
  • Burn cream
  • Safety scissors
  • Tweezers (metal or reusable)
  • Fabric bandages
  • Aspirin tablets
  • Nitrile gloves

Keeping Your Kit Safe

Kits should be stored in a visible, accessible, safe location. Choose a place that is comfortable for adult family members to reach but cannot be disturbed by curious children. Some items must be removed and replaced when they get old, so make a habit of checking your kit to make sure that items have not expired.
