I'm notorious for this on my ground shifts. I find them in my pants pocket when I pull them out of the washer. And yes, if they're still intact my cheap *** saves them for house duties.The only reason I have gloves is I end shift a lot with a spare pair in my pockets lol
Oh, we got plenty of band-aids in my household. Two small children, and one big one. "Paw Patrol" is my favorite (tee hee), but will settle for "Barbie" in a pinch.I had to go to my companies garage up the road for a band aid. I literally didn't even posses the basic household first aid supplies to treat a simple cut.
I keep a trauma pack, water, road flares. I don't stop tho. Most of the time there is someone on the way, and most of the time they are out and walking around. I have stopped before and that was because the collision was in front of me blocking me from going anywhere. The passenger was a child who was ejected so I walked up and did what i could until resources arrived. I would say have stuff but its really for you, family, and friends.Hello, I am a new EMT and I was wondering what I should put in my bag to leave in my car for emergencies. If everyone could give me some info on what's overkill and what you carry that would be great. Thank you in advance.

My own kit is not that far removed from yours, minus the TQs, when I actually have it in my car. Like yours, mine is mostly for personal/family use. For use on the general public, I have some 4x4s, a few bandaids, tape (1 roll paper, 1 roll plastic), a CPR barrier device or 3 (mostly because they're cheap and I can throw a couple in without taking up too much room), a small wad of nitrile gloves, and a roll of Coban or similar stuff. The majority of my FAK that I'd use on "the public" can be contained in a small 4x6 index card box.I tossed a 50 cal ammo can in my truck for a first aid kit. It has 2 TQs, some OTC medications, a Sam splint, some 4x4, bandaids, triangle bandages, tape, a CPR mask, gloves and ace bandages. Its mostly just items for friends/family/myself. Im not big at stopping off duty at TCs but if I did really the only thing I would do is bleeding control and call 911.
