Why does anyone need to own a first aid kit? we have paramedics and EMT's to handle these situations. they're trained professionals, and while I have learned much about first aid, I do not count myself as a professional first aid person.
Do I need a first aid kit? not particularly, I'm thoroughly cautious, and always consider safety before doing anything remotely dangerous. Do I want to have one nearby, just incase I may need it? You bet!
Imagine what I would do, if I could do all I can.
