Forestry IFAK with core contents, vented chest seal and Celox Rapid Gauze

£89.99 inc VAT

An orange individual first aid kit (IFAK) is particularly beneficial for forestry work or field trips due to several key advantages:

The most apparent benefit of having an orange IFAK is its high visibility. In environments like forests or remote outdoor areas, quickly locating equipment can be critical, especially in emergencies. The bright orange color stands out against natural backdrops, making it easier to find the kit swiftly when every second counts.

Immediate Identification
The color orange is often associated with safety and urgency (think life vests, traffic cones, and emergency vehicles). An orange IFAK is immediately recognisable as a safety item, even from a distance, ensuring that it can be quickly identified by anyone in need or those coming to assist, including emergency responders.

Enhanced Safety During Incidents
In forestry or during field trips, injuries can range from minor cuts and abrasions to severe traumas like major bleeds or puncture wounds. The specific contents of this IFAK—Celox Z-Fold Gauze, a genuine CAT 7 tourniquet, shears, a trauma dressing, and a chest seal—are chosen to address such injuries effectively. The bright color of the pouch adds an extra layer of safety by ensuring these critical items are immediately accessible and not overlooked.

Practicality in Diverse Situations
The items in the orange IFAK can handle a variety of medical situations. For instance:

1. Celox Z-Fold Gauze is used to control severe bleeding. It’s particularly effective because the gauze is impregnated with a haemostatic agent that accelerates blood clotting
2. Genuine CAT 7 Tourniquet is crucial for limb traumas where arterial bleeding is involved. It is designed to be applied quickly with one hand if necessary, which is vital if the injured person is alone or if the helper’s mobility is restricted.
3. Shears can cut through clothing facilitating faster access to wounds.
4. Trauma Dressing and Chest Seal are essential for managing penetrating injuries and to help prevent complications from chest wounds such as tension pneumothorax.
5. Adaptability. An orange IFAK is not just for professional rescuers; it’s also a practical choice for hikers, forestry workers, and field researchers. Its contents support a wide range of first aid actions that might be needed in these environments.

In summary, an orange IFAK for forestry or field trips provides a highly visible, easily recognizable, and essential tool for addressing emergencies. Its contents are specifically suited for traumatic injuries likely in those settings, enhancing safety and preparedness in potentially life-threatening situations.
