Safety First: What to Pack in Your Summer First Aid Kit

Unfortunately, the warm weather of Summer also brings along new health and safety risks. Whether it's a minor discomfort or something that requires a trip to the ER, being as prepared as possible is the best way to handle an emergency situation. Now is the time to dust off your old first aid kit and update it with things you'll need specifically for Summer injuries. Keep one at home, and bring along one when you go hiking, sailing, to the beach, or wherever to enjoy the sun.

Here's everything you'll need for a Summer safety kit:

  • A waterproof case (moisture can damage many of your supplies)
  • Sanitizing wipes to clean your hands before attending to the person in need
  • Latex gloves to prevent the spread of infection
  • Antiseptic towelettes to clean out scrapes and cuts
  • Neosporin or other cream to prevent infection
  • Bandages of all sizes including band-aids, gauze, and adhesive tape for cuts and blisters
  • Tweezers and a sterile needle for splinters
  • Instant ice packs for inflammation
  • Saline solution to clean out eyes
  • Small doses of over-the-counter medications such as Tylenol, Advil, Pepto-Bismol tablets, Dramamine, and Benadryl for allergic reactions
  • Bug spray to prevent bites
  • Sunscreen to prevent burns
  • Hydrocortisone cream for rashes and bug bites
  • Tea tree oil to treat poison ivy
  • Aloe vera gel to help soothe a sunburn
