What items should be in a first aid kit?
When you're heading out into the bush, whether it be on a day hike or an off-grid 4WD adventure, it's important to have your health and safety covered and be prepared for any eventuality. You'll want sun protection, adhesive bandages and insect protection for a start as sunburn, scratches, insect bites and the like can quickly ruin a great day out if you're unprepared. But more importantly, you'll want to be equipped to apply immediate first aid should a snake bite or more serious injury occur, so you can do what's required until help arrives.
If you're not sure of what items to put in your first aid kit, Anaconda stocks first aid kits for a range of different activities. But as a guide, here are a few essentials you should have with you no matter what adventure you're planning.

How do I keep my first aid kit organised?
Keeping your first aid kit organised is imperative so you know exactly where to find the items you need in an emergency. It's also important to make sure you restock items as they're used — there's nothing worse than reaching for a first aid dressing only to remember you haven't replaced it.
To keep your first aid kit organised, it helps to have a dedicated kit bag, with small compartments for each item. This will help you clearly identify what needs restocking. Labelling each compartment with item quantities and medication expiry dates will also help you to stay organised. Another option is to keep a notepad inside your first aid kit, each time you use an item, make a note of it and be sure to restock before each camping trip.
