Scraped knees, poison ivy, and minor burns make for a remarkable story with friends when you’re young, but never does one plan for it to happen on purpose.
Since we don’t intentionally create these events, sometimes we do not have adequate first aid available. A first aid kit should be easily accessible and fully stocked during field trips, outdoor play, or transportation. Use this first aid infographic from Adventist Risk Management, Inc. (ARM) when stocking your church or school first aid kit.
These are just a few items to get you started. As you better understand the use and need for first aid within your church or school, you can add to your supplies and equipment. It’s important to keep your kit accessible, especially to child caregivers; yet safely out of reach for children. Remember to restock your kit after each use and periodically check for expired or damaged items. For more information and resources on protecting your ministry, see ARM’s Prevention Resources.
