The Rothco Orange EMT Response Bag is a fine carryall that holds a good deal of our emergency medical supplies.
No more searching in various cabinets, drawers and cupboards for medical items.
This brightly colored bag allows us to easily find all products on hand in one clearly recognizable bag.
In any emergency time is of the essence and this bag,
with its divided and padded sections, allows us to find what is needed with just a quick glance.
Since we live by a ball field/play ground/school these items, whether for ourselves, our grandchildren
or sports players, will undoubtedly come in handy.
There have been bee stings, falls from bikes, injuries from practicing golfers hitting
someone else picking up stray golf balls, broken fingers simply from casually playing catch
as well as falls from swings and slides.
Keeping in mind the fact that these occurrences happened on weekends and summer vacation and
not during school time, we wanted to include as many items as space would allow for a "Grab and Go Comfort Kit".
Thankfully a fire station is located a few blocks away and we could run for help with the more serious injuries.

We do plan on ordering another bag in the blue. We will separate bandages, tapes, splints
while adding a few more instant cold packs, antiseptic hand soap, a cervical collar and
a folding cane to our orange bag along with even a few suckers for the young ones
crying for the injured. We would utilize the blue bag for everything else.
Keep in mind that if you have it and don't need it you are fortunate indeed.
However, if you need it and don't have it your life could be in jeopardy.
While this may well seem excessive, the life you save might just be your own!
