TRS Personal Trauma Kit, $60

Who really needs a trauma kit?

Well, in short, everybody. From everyday “”uh-ohs,” “oops-es” or “it seemed like a good idea” to a terrorist act, basic trauma kits (and the training that goes with them) is something everyone can use. Whether it’s a bicycle accident, car wreck, hiking injury or a gunshot wound, having the ability to stop heavy bleeding is a necessary skill. Since it only takes minutes for a person to bleed to death, being someone who can intervene could easily save a life, even your own. Most personal trauma kits are very affordable and come with some instruction on14962799_1260368973984558_7533359953687576662_n how to utilize them. Get one and throw it in your bag or vehicle.

Kits range from $25 to $150. Mid-range kits like the TRS Personal Trauma Kit (see picture) run about $60 and give you what you need to take care of a trauma injury. Other kits like those from Adventure Medical Kits can run on the lower end of the price range.

When a small investment in equipment and training (also available at TRS) can make a huge difference, consider the cost as an insurance policy. Be ready and equipped and, one day, you may act quick enough to save a life.

    I like that you mention that training is effective after getting a medical kit. Regardless of who you are, I agree that it’s important to have a trauma medical kit. It’s always better to be prepared, and it’s fairly easy to find kits that are already prepared. That leaves really no excuse to buy one and have it on hand.
