Black Hawk First Aid Kit

Add to your bag - Dial soap (to clean wounds), charcoal (for water filtration), zip lock bags (various sizes for irrigation of wound, or to enclose then bury bloody dressings or you'll attract animals, i.e. bears), and steel wool pads (for starting fires). Also, add a magnifying glass - to start a camp fire. Add heavy-duty string and nylon rope - to build a shelter.
Do not use alcohol or peroxide on an open wound - clean other tools with alcohol - see "Field Wound Care" on this page.
