I am ready….are you?

Let’s take a minute and talk about something most people don’t think about until it is needed…your first aid kit. It’s just one of those things that you know you have but does it really have what your need in it?  How many times has someone gone into it to get a band aid, tweezers or tensor bandage without you knowing?   A good rule to go by is to check your first aid kits monthly to make sure you have the supplies you need when you need them. A great addition to any first aid kit is Rip’s Med Straps.  They are compact, easy to use, reliable and light weight.  Perfect to help with fast, firm immobilization and compression bleeds.  Black in colour to prevent unsightly staining, they come with a bright green stripe and colour coded lengths to help with visibility in emergency situations.  Made of spun polyester right here in Canada, Rip’s Med Straps have triple rolled edges so that you have a firm grip for maximum stretch.  Up to 5 extra strong hook and loop fasteners are individually sewn so there is stretch between each one, which makes for easy, fast multi-band fastening for extra length.  Rip’s Med Straps come in 4″ and 6″ widths.  4″ wide med straps come in 23″& 33″ lengths and the 6″ wide med straps come in 18″, 26″ & 33″ lengths.  Both are sold separately or in kit form. Rip’s Med Straps may be the difference of time and life saving minutes in an emergency.
