7 first-aid kit must-haves for the home — and dorm room

(BPT) - As your family switches over to fall mode, or you send your son or daughter off to college, it’s a good idea to make sure you’re prepared for the little cuts, scrapes and burns that can happen along the way. One vital step is to create complete first-aid kits for your home, your car(s) — and for your college student to keep in their dorm room. If you already have a first-aid kit, periodically take inventory to ensure you have enough of those essential supplies for coping with life’s minor injuries.

First, make sure you have large enough waterproof containers for your first-aid kits that are both lightweight and durable — and that everyone in your household knows where to find your home kit when it’s needed.
