Camping in Alaska can be a lot of fun, but you should always be prepared for someone to get injured or sick. Creating a first aid kit to keep in your RV or to bring with you in the tent is a very important part of camping. These are some tips to help you put together the ideal kit so you will be prepared for any situation, and give you the tools to stay safe while out in the woods. If you can find a place where there are used travel trailers for sale (www.traveltrailerguide.com) you can usually find prepared first aid kits.
A good kit will have first aid essentials including; roll bandages, adhesive tape, sterile gauze pads, scissors, splinting supplies, different sized Band-Aids, Ace bandages, latex gloves, antibiotic cream, Tylenol or some pain medicine, and Hydrogen Peroxide. You also need to be prepared for specific threats with a bee sting kit, snake bite kit, and poison ivy creams and ointments. In addition you should have a thermometer, tweezers, twine, a small flashlight, and safety pins. These are all items that can come in handy and fit easily in your travel trailer.
Bring any medication you use on a daily basis and backup medicine just in case. You should also bring any allergy medicine and medicine for sinuses as sometimes being outdoors can trigger your allergies. Keep personal contact and emergency information in the kit as well as numbers for emergency help in the area you are visiting. If you do all of these things, you will be prepared for some of the common and uncommon injuries and illnesses that can occur while camping.
