Reading through last years “Recovery Equipment Checks” thread here reminded me to also perform my annual first aid kits check. Because I occasionally use my personal kit around the house, little things like band aids, ointments and pain relievers get used up. I also find in both (personal and group) kits a number of over the counter drugs (pain relievers, decongestants, …) that have hit (or getting close) their expiration date and need refreshing. Because I’m a cheap SOB… I will often move the drugs (pain relievers, decongestants, …) expiring in the next 6 months or so into the house’s medicine cabinet and replace them in the kits with new. That way they get used up before they expire.
