Yes, we do. I say this because my wife is very strict about keeping a complete medical kit ready in case of emergencies around the house. I wish I could say it was concern for me but the real reason is our two boys which works for me. ;)

Yes actually when my son decided to play superman and jumped chin first into our ottoman from the back of the couch. We had to use the sterile pads to staunch the bleeding, put a couple of butterfly bandages and use the cold packs on him before going to the emergency room. 4 hours later and nine stitches we were good to go.

i do carry a medical jump bag in my vehicle at all times, but i am an emt also. i have had to use it quite a few times and it sure beats waiting for a ambulance. i suggest that everyone who might even possibly stop and help with a medical emergency carry a pair or two of rubber or nitrile gloves. more for your protection than theirs, you never know what they could have.

i have to be very careful with the legal aspects of medical advice, but i am willing to try to answer any questions that people might have in regards to emergency medicine. if i can't answer for whatever reason, i do have access to further medical info and can put you in contact with it. please keep in mind that laws are very different in all parts of the country.

I was an EMT for 15 years, and always carry my jump bag in my truck. Used it a few times, and was very glad I had it.

I was EMT many yrs ago, but I always have my first aid kit or box handy. Just in the course of going out in the desert, going boating or whatever, it's been opened and used more than a couple of times.

A couple of yrs ago we were headed up to one of the northern lakes with our boat. We came upon one very serious auto accident on the way up there, but paramedics (and air ambulance) were already on the scene. On the way back, we were the second vehicle (first with any first aid equipment) on the scene where a deer had jumped off the mountain above the road, hit the windshield of a passenger car, and slid off the hood and down the hill. The driver had his fingers crushed between the windshield and the steering wheel and two passengers were in shock. We helped out there until the sheriff and paramedics arrived. We stopped for lunch and proceeded toward home, when halfway there we were first on the scene of yet a third accident where a lady missed her turnoff and lost control trying to stop and/or turn. She was dinged up, too.

We had to restock the old' medical box after that little trip.

BAS was throwing out a bunch of old Unit 5s a while ago. Doc hooked me up with some supplies for it. But refused when I asked for morphine. :mrgreen:

Comes in handy.

When I was in college, I was on my way back to Lubbock from Houston on a two lane road. Came upon a pretty bad accident. Third car on the scene. Long story short, I had to plug a hole in the driver's head (she hit it on the steering wheel) for the half hour it took for the volunteer EMS to get there. Since that day, I always carry a first aid kit and pocket mask in my truck.
