Hull, United Kingdom (PressExposure) June 19, 2009 -- Dave Frank, the Marketing Director of St. John Ambulance in the U.S, recommends that if you are looking to save money then pre-assembled first aid kits are best as they are usually the cheapest (a fantastic range of ready-to-buy kits are available to view and purchase online from the First Aid Warehouse site but to be aware of your true needs as it can be tempting to buy larger kits thinking that bigger is better.
This is not necessarily the case as larger kits can contain a lot of additional products that will never be used, or worse still, products that are not fully understood and can be used in error.
As Frank Said, "why would you buy a kit that includes splints, unless you've done a first-aid course that tells you 'This is what to do with a splint?'"
Before buying a kit, think carefully about the kit contents. Even without first aid training, common sense should be enough to guide your decision. Doing a bit of online research prior to committing to a purchase is recommended and if you have any questions or concerns, specialist suppliers of first aid kits, such as the UK's leading supplier of first aid kits and medical equipment First Aid Warehouse, are always happy to provide additional advice and information on their first aid kits.
