Tips from the Trail: Medical Kits
4/24/2017 6:30:00 AM BY Kent Marks, Volunteer

When hiking and camping, you'll want to make sure you've got a small first aid kit with you. Compact and lightweight, the benefits of having one will far outweigh the bit of space it'll use in your pack or pocket.

A useful first aid kit will contain various types of bandages, medical tape, gauze, antiseptic wipes, antiobiotic ointment, over-the-counter medicine (asprin, ibuprofen, antihistamine, etc), and tweezers.

First aid kits can be "homemade" as well! This is a fantastic idea to teach your Trailmen which supplies to include, the best way to pack them, and how to use each item.


TLUSA Leaders may not administer medication to Trailmen under 18 years of age


In this video, Regional Team Leader Kent Marks shows us what’s inside a store-bought medical kit.
