First aid is a massive factor in surviving any disaster. The moment you are cut off from normal emergency services you have to have answers. The first aid kit
is also important in daily life as well. If you have a cheap little kit you will find that you are rushing out to the store more often than you should be. For me the first aid kit goes in a larger Rubbermaid container and I add to that in order to create a chest of first aid. This allows me to customize my kit the way I see fit.
This article focuses on another important part of first aid in disaster. The act of improvisation is crucial in assuring you have the first aid essentials you need. Following a disaster these things will be harder to come by and improvisation may be your only answer.
