The items in the kit can be stored in a box or a tote bag where adult members of a family or other group
know where it is located. The kit should be stored out of reach of children, and products should have child safety caps. Follow the manufacturer's guidelines for the correct use of medications and supplies.
The kit should be compact enough to be transported in a car, suitcase, or rucksack if traveling.
The kit should be inspected monthly to ensure that the contents are not damaged or out of date.
Health care team roles
All members should have knowledge of the appropriate use of all equipment and medication, and the ability to recognize situations in which immediate medical attention is required. The emergency information list should include the following:
numbers of local police, fire, and ambulance services
In addition, a list should be compiled of any allergies that a family or team member has, and the treatment required.
Adults with access to the first aid kit should have an understanding of the first aid manual and the correct use of all medications and equipment. Attendance at a course in basic first aid will enable them to respond quickly and appropriately to any emergency, equipping them with a knowledge of life-threatening situations and the first aid treatment to be given. At least one person in every large group should be trained in first aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
