Where should I keep my first aid kit?

Keep it in an area of the house where it is easy to get to in an emergency and where everyone in the family has access.

First aid kits should be put in a spot that is easy to find in an emergency, but still out of reach of young children. In addition, you should have more than one first aid kit - one for the home and one for each vehicle you own. You may consider a small travel-size first aid kit for trips to the park or pool, or creating a special first aid kit for traveling. For example, if you're going camping, you might put extra sunscreen, burn ointment, bug repellent, and bite lotion in the kit.
