allotment first aid kit

Post by Yorkshire Andy » Mon Nov 12, 2018 9:46 pm

Well I think I've got most bases covered

Thinking about an allotment it's a dirty place with lots of potential for lots of cuts/ stab type wounds with added dirt muck and poo, factor in physics work / strains / sprains / cardiac episodes


In no real order

4" & 6" trauma dressings

CAT Tourniquet with the above for severe bleeding

Pile of wound swabs / gauzes (wound packing / dressing

Crape bandages these with wound swabs = another ad-hoc trauma dressings / applying additional pressure plus wrapping strains / sprains

standard first aid dressings for less serious but deep cuts

wet wipes general wound cleaning

eye wash and eye pads

tsept antiseptic sachets bit of a taboo now but if I stand on a rake having raked the chicken coup out I'm happy to take the risk of a wound not healing as quick over killing any pathogens that have got in.....

foil blanket

pocket cpr mask
Aspirin 300mg dispersible

pack of assorted plasters
instant cool pack

burns gell and burns dressing

I used to know a hedger and part time charcoal burner, he made a habit of putting his FAK in his pocket before unloading any tools from the van.

Rotorvators / petrol bush cutters with ninja star discs / agricultural glass a plenty such items demand more than a Elastoplast should things go pete-tong pepair for the worst and all that, coupled with access and ambulance call out times getting worse and it's going to be our immediate bol makes it worth stocking well pointless having the training without the kit :)

Added a 2kg 13a 84b c powder extinguisher today just incase petrol tools /bonfires make it a handy thing to have yes foam / water mist might be better but powder won't freeze in a unheated shed
