Clearwater, FL (PressExposure) October 20, 2009 -- Genuine First Aid (http://www.genuinefirstaid.com) releases a new life saving system in their first aid kits with patent pending Easy Access Pockets designed to provide all the first aid supplies needed in easy to find pouches. The Easy Access Pocket System consists of six clearly labeled, transparent, re-sealable pouches, organized by type of emergency: small cuts and burns, medium cuts and scratches, severe cuts and burns, CPR, protection and instruments. Each pocket is clearly labeled with its contents and instructions for actual first aid. In an emergency, where every second counts, people are often frantic. This new easy to use system can provide first aid faster and help save lives.
The typical First Aid Kits on the market have several inherent problems. Items in the kits are jumbled so when the case is opened, often in a panic, what is needed can be difficult to find at a time when every second counts. If the First Aid Kit is opened quickly, items go flying all over the place, again losing time trying to find needed items. Often items have no clear instructions with them. And many of the kits do not comply with Occupational Health and Safety (OSHA) requirements.
âFirst Aid Kits are not just mobile medicine cabinets. Sure, they are great for handling minor cuts and scratches, but they may be called upon at any time to save lives - your life or the life of someone you love,â says Michael Holstein ([http://www.genuinefirstaid.com/about_us.htm]), CEO of Genuine First Aid, LLC. âWe had to invent something new to handle the problems with most First Aid Kits and that is the Easy Access Pocket System. It resolves all the problems present in old-style First Aid Kits, and gives people a kit that really works. And weâre quite proud that every kit complies with OSHA guidelines,â concludes Holstein.
Genuine First Aid has created a line of kits which all use the Easy Access Pocket System: 5 levels of red soft-bag kits (also available in blue), and 2 levels of hard-case kits (only in red). These kits all have eyewash, triangular bandages, CPR breathing barriers and other vital first aid components typically not included in kits currently on the market in this size and price range. The kits can be found at major retailers, and buyers can call 866-500-9129 to find a local retailer.
