Where to store a home first aid kit

Keep a first aid kit in an easily accessible place. If you have children, make sure that they do not have access to medications. All adult family members should know where the first-aid kit is stored and have unhindered access to first-aid equipment.

Drugs have a specific shelf life. Every 6 months, conduct an audit and, without regret, throw away everything that has expired. In addition, the first-aid kit should be stored in a dry and cool place where direct sunlight and heat from central heating radiators do not fall.
