First Aid Kit Information

  Make sure a general first-aid kit is available at your group meeting place and accompanies girls on any activity (including transportation to and from the activity). Please be aware that you may need to provide this kit if one is not available at your meeting place. You can purchase a Girl Scout first-aid kit, you can buy a commercial kit, or you and the girls can assemble a kit yourselves.
You can also customize a kit to cover your specific needs, including flares, treatments for frostbite or snake bites, and the like. In addition to standard materials, all kits should contain the council and emergency telephone numbers.
