You know who we trust in emergencies? The American Red Cross. We've come across them in our own emergency situation after a devastating apartment fire and the personnel were amazing. That's neither here nor there, but this 182-piece first aid kit has the fundamentals you need for minor wounds and smaller medical issues. We would supplement it with items (see notes), but it's a heck of a start. And it supports a great cause.
