It is recommended that ALL Yolo ARES members keep their first aid and CPR certifications current AND that they carry a basic first aid with them when on assignment.

Darrin, K9RTY, mentioned that SOS products has some great kits for about $80. He carries a Trauma kit, but, said that the less pricey kits give good value. Here is the contact info for SOS SOS Survival Products, Van Nuys CA:
