A First Aid Kit, often abbreviated FAK, is a set of tools and supplies designed and assembled to ease or make possible the performance of First Aid. Having a FAK by itself, as part of a bug-out bag, or in a vehicle or home is a large step towards be prepared for disasters great and small.

It is typically the first financial investment one makes in the Band-aids aspect of the Beans-Bullets-Bandaids of prepping. However, one must also invest in the books, knowledge, training and skills of healing as well.

When building your own FAK there are several factors you will want to consider such as:

  • What tools and supplies am I capable of using?
  • How many people is this kit is for?
  • Is it just for trauma (injuries) or also for illness?
  • Where do you plan to use it? (At the house or on a road trip, or in the PAW?)
  • How long do you want it to last?
