Not Just Guns > EDC/Prepping


(1/3) > >>

I like to keep a small medical kit in my vehicle's boot (ok, ok - trunk!) with supplies suitable for trauma such as a car-crash or even a gun-shot wound - no matter where I am, my vehicle is usually nearby and on the range I attach the pouch to my range-bag.

I hadn't repacked my kit in a few years so to this end I bought a new 5x7" pouch and fresh supplies including tourniquet, nasopharyngeal tube/lube, Ceelox and Quik-Clot blood-clotting gauze and powder, Israeli bandage, chest seals, etc, etc.

In a few weeks I'll be taking a tactical combat casualty medical course which is known to be stressful during the exercises but should be fun. Anybody else doing anything?

That's pretty cool and ingenious!

My vehicles have fairly extensive med kits inside them as well as smaller booboo kits in the glove boxes. My day pack also has a full IFAK (individual first aid kit). When I go to the range or other activity that has an potential for increased injury to myself or others I bring along my large med kit. 

I am currently First Aid/CPR/AED qualified through the ARC. I have taken multiple formal first aid and combat life saver courses, individual training with EMTs, Paramedics and Advanced combat medics. I have been meaning to take a wilderness survival first aid course.

Start the Breathing
Stop the Bleeding
Protect the Wound
Treat for Shock

Very nice indeed :)

The Patriot Nurse runs medical courses - not specifically wilderness but SHTF type stuff:

I have a few medical kits - home, car, BOB, and travel bag.  Usually I buy components and build my own. 

I thought about taking some classes, but haven't taken any in several years.  I do know some stuff from the various qualifications and annually refreshers I had to do while in the Navy.
