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.
