Putting Together A Home First Aid Kit

Emergencies can happen anytime and anywhere, so being prepared for one is important for you and your family - always have a well-stocked first aid kit in your home for emergency situations.

Not long ago while I was up at Skylands, my home in Maine, I cut my finger opening a package - nothing major, but I could not find the proper supplies anywhere in my house to care for my wound. I decided it was crucial to re-stock all the necessary first aid items and make sure every one of my properties had two first aid kits. My personal executive assistant, Shqipe Lulanaj, took on this task right away. Along with the guidance of my physician and friend, Dr. Albert Knapp, and the experts at my local pharmacy, Weinstein's, she created six portable kits filled with all the basic medical tools and supplies needed for any small emergency.

This weekend may be a good time to assess all your first-aid supplies - enjoy these photos.
