    Default Jump Bag Checklist

    I am curious if anyone here has a blank checklist for their "Basic" jumpbag. We are looking for something as a basis for our own. I am talking something like 2 elastic wraps, 20 4x4's etc.

    If you have something and are willing to share, please either post it here, or send me an email to leech2k4@yahoo.com.

    Thank you in advance.

    I know for a fact this topic has been discussed at least a hundred times in the past. BUT... I'll play along and let someone else beat the dead horse.

    Some swiffer's... My bag is in the closet collecting dust. Only once in seven years have I ever been in a situation where the ambulance either couldn't get there quick or was too far away.. I don't go out looking for people to treat, and I'm not too apt to stop along the roadway.. I mean I'll call for help, but I don't advertise my training.

    I considered what I had at home that could cause injury, and what was between my home and the firehouse. My various power saws, mitre saw, sawzall, etc. A sawmill, a woodworks factory, a garage, and a water fall that kids jump off of. I wanted just some basic stuff that I could use to assist my neighbors/self/family in order to delay death...

    8x10 Trauma Dressings x2
    (I know, I know, traditional trauma dressings are 10x30 or 12x30-but it's a small bag)
    4x4 Gauze Squares x 15
    Cravats x 4 (can also use to secure dressings)
    4" Kling x 4 (bought on ebay with some other assorted little things)
    Sam Splint x 1 (the grey ones look less tacky than orange/blue-but I only wanted it for the size)
    Roll of tape x 1 (Good tape (Transpore), none of that paper or fabric crap)
    I bought my bag at the PA fire expo and got an oral airway kit & CPR mask for free, so I tossed those in
    Penlight, the walmart kind w/ replaceable batteries
    I was given a collar by my service, so I tossed that in the trunk, since it wouldn't fit in the bag
    Like a zip lock bag full of gloves

    Adult BVM
    1 Nasal canula
    1 non-rebreather (i dont carry O2 but our police do and i tend to give them my extra)
    Gloves (about 5 pairs worth, i tend to use the glvoes for automotive purposes as well)
    Peroxide (why alcohol / peroxide, my old agency got me in the habbit of using them for cleaning purposes)
    20 4x4's
    3-5 5x9's (not a big 5x9 fan as you can tell)
    1 Trauma dressing
    1 all size c-collar (yes, i HAVE used this, ive actually used it a number of times, if a calls between me and my firehouse, i stop at the scene and my driver meets me)
    2 of each size cling
    3-4 Cravats
    Oral Airways
    Nasal airways
    Adult BP Cuff (which is missing, it broke i've yet to replace it, the #1 thing i need though)
    Red bag
    Wire splint (its like a SAM splint, only no protective covering, i got it from my old ambulance squad when they were throwing things out)

    I think thats roughly everything in my bag. It was a gift last year for xmas, but then got stolen (it came stocked) so my dad had some extra EMS bags lying around (dont ask why) and i stocked it with the above. Everytings in a seperate compartment inside the bag, it sits on my back seat, works well.

    I think he is more or less asking for a blank sheet, that he can checkoff when he checks whats in his bag.

    Can't you just type what you have into a spreadsheet;

    Item: QTY: Location (outside pocket, inside, etc): Qty Found on Inspection: QTY Needed: etc?

    Seems like a plan to me. Like the thing you would check off before state licensure inspection for the rig?

    I think I have something...

    It's not for trauma/first aid, it's an airway/O2 kit, but I'm thinking it's the same general concept.
