It was one of those red letter days!
My son Jack, now five, took off on his bike for the first time without training wheels! Off to the park to get some additional practice. His third time around the gravel parking lot, down he went! The tears were flowing as I saw the blood appearing on his knee.
I raced to the car to get the first aid kit we had purchased for my vehicle. Honestly, I never thought I'd use it.
I opened the kit, relieved to see a tweezers. I had to remove pebbles imbedded in his knee. I then applied the antibiotic ointment and found just the right Band-Aid. Every essential item I needed to complete this "operation" was there. I understand now why my wife wanted to purchase kits for our home, camper and vehicles. You never know when an emergency, small or large, will come up. Essential Treatment First Aid Kits also have extra space for your individual needs, like an EpiPen.
The biggest complaint you hear about first aid kits is that they don't include enough "first aid". Be assured that a quick look through the contents will convince you that this kit has all the essential supplies you need.

2 Fingertip bandages 1 ¾" X 3"
