I would add keep a 3 day supply of critical meds for your family, pets included if you have them. I keep a tornado bag(go bag) in our camper with a first aid kit in it plus 3 days supply of hikers food and bottled water and dog food and all the other go bag things in it for 3 people even though there are only 2 of us...maybe we can help one other if we have a tornado while camping.

Probably the easiest thing for you to do is thoroughly look over your home assortment of medicines and misc. Then get a plastic box and load it up with what you use most out of it.

You might want to add poison ivy treatment or calamine lotion for that purpose.

For children get an assortment of sizes of bandaids and antibiotic cream.

Any special eye/ear stuff you use?

Cough medicine? Cold tabs? Allergy tabs? Cough drops?

At the last minute be sure to pack any regular prescriptions you take.

When you get there, look up the address for the nearest Urgent Care and Hospital to have on hand. Carry a record of all immunizations. Meds taken. Your primary doctor. Allergies to meds?

Your best bet is to start with a pre-made first aid kit. Check the Red Cross. In Canada, we have something called St. John's Ambulance. Not sure if they are in the US but they sell some good kits. Then add what ever else you might need.

I carry:
Antiseptics: Hydrogen Peroxide, Steril wipes.
Various pressure and triangular bandages
Pain killers (aspirin, or Tylenol)
Rash soother - calamine or some prefer penaten but they have different uses IMO)
Some saline eye drops
Good scissors, tweezers, etc.

And this is one for those of us who don't wear watches. A stop watch or other watch with a second hand (an old wind up watch will do and just leave it in the kit). For those times when you need to time such things as pulse taking, respiration counting etc.

That will generally get you through the worst stuff long enough to get proper medical help if required.

Consider taking a first aid course too. The more you know, the more useful the kit is.
