(Survival Manual/ 6. Medical/ c) General Clinic/ First Aid supply list)
The three top killers of mankind are:
1) Upper Respiratory Infection,
2) Diarrhea and
3) Skin Infections.
Your household medical kit should be weighted heavily to cover against these diseases
Your personal or group’s specific needs obviously determine the type and amount of stored medicinal items. Most of the items everyone should have, others are related to personal health issues. Where as one family might need to store more antacids, another may need a larger supply ion antihistamines, etc.
I developed the following personal list, to track purchase locations, expiration date, item cost and a lilttle information about the product. The width of the list has been reduced to fit in the columnar confines of the WordPress blog page. To keep track of the supplier, I used a code like G= Walgreen’s, W=Walmart. A=Amazon.com, where most of the itmes were purchased. Items with expiration date were simply entered below the suppliers code name, ie W/7-15-2014, meaning “Bought at Walmart, expires July 15, 2014.” If a situation arose that looked extremely serious, the one area of supply that I would want to seriosly increase would be the antibiotics, also several extra gallons of regular, unscented household clorox (not listed).

First Aid Kit List
It is important that each of us has access to a good first aid kit and that you know how to use it. Assemble your kit now, before you need it. Get a box or plastic tote and begin throwing things in. You will be surprised how much you can find around the house before you need to make a run to the drug store. Tailor the contents to fit your family’s particular needs and lifestyle. Assemble them in a backpack or tool chest. Any bottle or container that is not labeled should be discarded. “If in doubt, throw it out.” Check your kit periodically to update and restock. Start using it now for any of your health needs.
