Ok seal team 6, I have some Percacet and vikadine (spelling) too. From a neck surgery.
Its not exactly classified info. Just thought if you had some piece of kit that was cool would be nice to share
This is a start....http://www.quikclot.com/home.aspx

I carry two pouches in the kit. Chainsaw, ax, circular saw cut with arterial bleeding...apparently, this is the stuff.

Luckily, I haven't had to try it out yet.

I somewhat discussed what I carry in post #9.

Mixed with that is assorted survival stuff also.

Thank you, I saw someone mention this earlier. Now thanks to your advise I am going to buy some, keep it in my truck and it may just help me or one of my guys one day. I don't carry anything like what you and other guys have said. I only have a walmart first aid kit. But I think this stuff looks like it is worth the money.

My truck is my only transportation and chances are...I'm never too far away from it.

I tell my friends and neighbors...if we are ever in a disaster situation...don't lose sight of my truck.

Be Prepared....B.S.A......swore my oath around the 6th grade.

we have first aid kits in all of our trucks. I should pick up a small box of Band-Aids to keep in my bags though so I don't have to get off the roof and go down to the truck when I get a cut.

I try hard not to get cut but if I do...chances are it's time for a small break.

After all...I'm in charge.....:whistling

I'm not going to post things on a public forum that could get me, or someone else in a jam. Sorry.

Some thing said or posted here ,(pictures), sometimes could be seen by
big brother.

My insurance carrier checked my website for photos to make sure I wasn't doing things that weren't covered by my policy. Imagine what they would thing if they saw someone working unsafe, or blasting a rock with a bullet, http://www.toolsofthetrade.net/concrete-drilling-and-breaking-tools/a-plumbers-bag-of-tricksblasting-rock-with-a-bullet_o.aspx?dfpzone=blogs.davidfrane,or not using fall protection, or safety glasses. etc.

The Army quit using Quickclot powder because it is hell to clean out of a wound. The new version is an impregnated gauze that does not have that problem.

Quickclot is good for rapid blood loss that can't be treated with a tourniquet - chest, head, neck etc. Most wounds to extremities can be controlled with direct pressure or a tourniquet.

Here is a slick one the Army uses and you can easily carry around in your bags. I keep one handy for chain saw and circ saw work.
