FIRST AID

From Mark, KG5ZZV

Mark gave a quick overview on first aid and had the below items to share with everyone.
I’m planning to start my pretty brief presentation with a reference (sad this is necessary) to the Oklahoma Good Samaritans Act.  I’m sure the ARES folks are well aware of this, but anyone considering performing first aid should really be aware of this and pre-make the decision to help (or not).

What you should carry in your first aid kit varies widely by the areas that you might visit, but bleeding control, airway management and CPR are specific skills that are always useful to have.  That said, here is the commercially made first aid kit that I keep in my Jeep.  It is small, well packaged and has many useful items.
