After seeing Fontucky's "First Aid" tent, I decided to make an investment for the god of those that I care about.

also i think im gonna invest in a decent kit aswell and keep it in my truck.
I have probably stolen enough crap from work to outfit a basic first aid kid. Get a bag and we'll talk.


As for Fontana's "first aid", it's great for minor injuries, but for more serious (head) injuries, it's a joke. As a person higher on the medical food chain, I'm disappointed they didn't take c-spine precautions after seeing where the impact on his helmet was. After seeing them try to remove him from a position of comfort (Even a basic BLS or first responder should know the importance of this) I decided it was probably best to carry more than what I had; enough to hand off a base line set of vitals to medics after they arrived.


TJ, I'm sorry for not checking you out more thoroughly, but I was too busy laughing. I'm sure you understand, but I felt like balls after I saw what they were putting you through.

I keep a first aid kit in my car most times. I also stocked it from work. (Kaiser hospital) It's amazing what you can find in the surgery department after hours!

I'm not suprised, i've seen some of the worst medical given to down riders at races, even by people who should know better. I've got a small kit in the car, but not as much as I'd like, since i don't have any place to "borrow" supplies from anymore. I'll probably just plow down the 100 bones and get a stocked first in bag.
