We should always do our best to be prepared to respond to any emergency.

Even though we may not be trained medical professionals there are often small bits of assistance we can provide with first aid and effective and fast response to smaller emergencies.

We always advise motorists to travel with a first aid kit or have a first aid kit available at home. This becomes especially important with small kids picking up those nasty bumps, burns, cuts and bruises.

Many of us are, however, not well organized and could do with some advice on what we may need in such an emergency medical kit.

Make sure you have a look at this Arrive Alive Health Precautions and Safe Travel video for more information:
