#FirstAidFriday: Preparing You for Life’s Scrapes and Scratches

#FirstAidFridayWhen I was about 10, my dad snagged his hand with a fishhook while we were angling at a local pond. We sure could have used a first aid kit. 

As a college student clearing rubble from an old warehouse, I had an unfortunate encounter with an errant nail. A first aid kit definitely would have come in handy.

In more recent years, my wife and I have witnessed plenty of bumps, scrapes and bruises as our children learned to walk, went to camp, played with friends and participated in sports. Each mishap was a clear reminder of why it’s always important to have basic medical supplies nearby.

I bet you have your own “accident list,” don’t you? Here’s a more important question: Do you keep a first aid kit nearby – like in the kitchen or inside your car or next to your workbench?
