What equipment should I include in my Trauma Kit?

Recommendations for equipment inclusion within a trauma kit are based on managing potentially preventable causes of death from trauma. Examples include (but are not limited to):


Bleeding Control 

Pressure Dressings

Pressure Bandages

Wound packing gauze/material (for junctional hemorrhage or areas not amenable to tourniquet use)

Tourniquets


Respiratory Emergencies

Adhesive occlusive chest seals


Hypothermia Prevention

Emergency blankets


Personal Protective Equipment

Medical gloves

Eye Protection


We encourage community members seeking to acquire a trauma kit to receive training in the use of the trauma kits contents.
