A realistic and practical solution for mass-casualty disasters.
From my experience as a professional firefighter treating serious injuries at mass casualty incidents, I have discovered what you really need in a disaster first aid bag is life saving supplies, not band-aids. Your Disaster First Aid Kit should be able to stabilize life threatening injuries like shock, burns, fractures and control of serious bleeding and wounds. There is no fluff in this first aid kit. Practical disaster supplies from bulk trauma dressings, arm and leg splints, burn gel, sterile water to paramedic scissors, items that will be necessary with real injuries following an earthquake.
You also need a kit that compliments your employees level of training. We pack a lot of bulk dressings and first aid supplies that anyone with basic skills could make a big difference in victims lives. Be careful when shopping for Disaster First Aid Kits. Most kits have the wrong items or supplies that are out of protocol. Do not use Alcohol or Hydrogen Peroxide as it damages tissue, capillaries and promotes the growth of bacteria. Butterfly bandages can close in septic infections. Ammonia Inhalants can cause breathing problems.
1 Disaster First Aid Kit is recommended for every 150 persons at your site.
We highly recommend that you also get an Incident Command Post Kit with Triage Package and Stretchers, especially if you have more than 150 persons in your site/school.
For exact computation of recommended supplies for your site/school, use our free Disaster Calculator for Schools to generate your customized report.
Computation on how to get the right quantity of Disaster First Aid Kit for your school.
The following Disaster Supply Guidelines are suggested for every 150 persons at your school or business site. After analyzing what injuries you could expect in an emergency such as an earthquake, we developed a list of practical first aid supplies in quantities that will allow you to treat the expected number of injured that a large earthquake or disaster may create. Our Disaster First Aid Kit is based on the following supplies. Figure the number of people at your site and divide by 150 to get your multiplier.
Your number of people_____/150
Example: 600 people divided by 150 = 4 Disaster First Aid Kits

This Disaster First Aid Kit for schools classrooms or the business office or CERT teams is packed with almost 500 bulk emergency first aid supplies appropriate to your employees level of training and safe for the victims. We had schools and businesses and CERT teams in mind when we designed our Disaster First Aid Kit.
This Disaster First Aid Kit is professionally designed by Captain Wayne Bennett (Ret.). After analyzing the expected injuries in schools and large business sites, we were able to put together a compact first aid kit that allows your medical team to treat minor and severe injuries on a mass-casualty scale.
TIP! Remember, Triage is the front door to the Disaster First Aid areas. Set-up separate treatment (triage tarps) areas for the Immediate and Delayed patients. Leave enough room between the two areas or tarps to layout your first aid supplies, providing access to the medical supplies from both treatment areas.
