Are you Prepared for an Emergency on the Road?


Did you know 90% of people spend 87 minutes per day driving? And that the average is approximately 100 minutes per day for those commuting?

How long do you personally spend in your car? Would you be prepared on the road in the case of an emergency?

Throughout summer you may have noticed yourself making longer trips on the road, whether it be to the cottage, camping or a family road trip. Often in these times hospitals and medical facilities can be distant or even unknown in proximity. Life is precious so it is important to be prepared for yourself and your loved ones.

First Aid Canada offers a range of  vehicle distress kits which can fit perfectly in the trunk or back seat of any vehicle:


Another aspect of being prepared on the go is to considering the threat of cardiac arrest. Cardiac arrest can happen at any age without warning signs, this is why onsite Automated External Defibrillators are highly recommended. Onsite AEDs are very light weighing only 3.3 lbs, thus can be easily transported wherever you and your loved ones are off to next.
