FIRST AID KIT
Many people are satisfied that one first aid kit per hiking group is sufficient while each member of the group is only responsible for his/her own kit with personal medical items such as an inhaler or insulin.
There are however, more valid reasons why each hiker should have his/her own full first aid kit than arguments for a single group kit and that are why we are in favour of the full first aid kit per person.
Merely having a first aid kit complying with the minimum requirements is, however, not enough! One has to make sure that all medicines in the kit are within the manufacturers expiry date and, furthermore, one must be knowledgeable on the use of all medicine and the prescribed dosages!
