My Medic First Aid Kit
Review by Ellen B. on 3 Sep 2020 review stating My Medic First Aid Kit
I am very impressed with the quality of the items in the kit. I have spent years assisting in the ER as a RN, so I appreciate what you chose to include. Living in Alaska and being out in remote areas for recreation makes this kit a potential life saver. Keep doing your good work providing for our safety.
