As any emergency medical technician can attest, when faced with a medical emergency, preparation can often mean the difference between life and death. The same applies to injuries and emergencies of a less severe nature. Often times, the severity of an injury or wound can be exacerbated by a lack of preparedness, and vice versa. The severity of any number of injuries and wounds such as cuts, gashes, abrasions and scrapes can often be minimized with a little preparation followed by fast action once the injury has occurred.
Often times, by simply taking the necessary steps to prevent an infection (or at the very least reduce the probability of an infection occurring), the person suffering the injury can be spared a great deal of misery, and the healing time required can be greatly reduced.
First Aid Kits are exactly the sort of thing many people don't even think about until they need one. That said, Egan Medical has decided to offer the kits, which retail for over $30, for just $18.90 as part of an ongoing effort to help educate the public about emergency preparedness. One major part of emergency preparedness has to do with having a first aid kit present, and that fact is not lost on Egan Medical, hence the promotion.
