Street Medic Wikia (beta), the online resource for street medics that anyone can edit

This list is divided into 3 sections: essentials, things most people will want to have in a complete kit (basics), and extras. People carry more or less from the third list depending on the specific action (is it raining or snowing? is it 100 degrees outside?), available space, and experience. Remember, an emergency situation is never the time nor place for your first experience with a new herb or medication. Give some thought to your bag itself (many people prefer shoulder bags since they allow quicker and easier access on the fly) and how it's packed (for example, what should be packed on the outside or on the top for easiest access? what must be kept dry?). The L (L superscript) denotes potential latex item.
