Countdown to Christmas 2016 [fergcorp_cdt_single date=”Sun, 25 Dec 2016 00:00:00″]
Every boat needs a USCG first aid kit aboard. This is the one the Mystic Maiden has and recommends!
The Pac-Kit 8010 135-piece lifeboat first aid kit contains supplies for treating cuts, abrasions, burns, headaches, eye wounds, and fractures for up to 25 people. The kit comes in a weatherproof plastic case with a carrying handle and mounting holes that measures 10 x 10 x 3 inches (H x W x D). (H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.) This first aid kit has been approved for use in lifeboats by the United States Coast Guard. Refill supplies are sold separately.
A first aid kit holds a variety of supplies for treating injuries such as cuts, burns, scratches, and bleeding, and for giving CPR. First aid kits are commonly used in OSHA-certified and other workplaces, in facility management, emergency environments, and in industrial, contracting, sporting, and home applications.
Pac-Kit Safety Equipment manufactures first aid supplies, eye wash stations, and gloves. The company, founded in 1946, is headquartered in Fairfield, CT.
