Everlit Emergency Trauma Kit (This Kit Has You Covered!)

The EVERLIT Emergency Trauma Kit

Recently, while going through some of my preparations, I found I lacked a first aid kit in my truck geared towards car accidents. Over the past few years, there have been several times that I have had to stop and aid motorists involved in an accident. Unfortunately, living in a rural area without full-time first responders means it can take some time before help arrives at an accident scene. Therefore, it’s on other community members to help each other when accidents happen. 

The kit I keep in my truck is geared more toward gunshot wounds than basic first aid. However, I’ve wanted to create a more all-around encompassing aid kit to save space, and while I’m at it, use this as a writing opportunity. 

With those goals in mind, I began researching pre-made, ready-to-go kits to help readers and those new to prepping make an informed purchase. That research led me to the Emergency Trauma Kit by Everlit Survival, a veteran-owned company. And, because I have no affiliation with Evelit, I purchased the kit with my own money.

My Emergency Medical Experience

Let me start by stating that I am not in the emergency medical profession. However, I was trained as a combat lifesaver in the U.S. Army and, unfortunately, had to put those skills to use in treating wounded soldiers and civilians in Iraq. In addition to my experiences in Iraq, as I mentioned, at least once a year, I come upon a vehicle or other accident and provide aid until EMS arrives. 

Don’t Forget the Training

Because being ready to deal with a medical emergency is so critical to preparedness, I recommend that everyone take a basic first-aid course, as there is no such thing as “enough” medical training. In addition to a basic first aid course, I suggest everyone attend Stop the Bleed and CPR training. Ultimately, having a medical kit is an excellent step forward, but having the knowledge and skill to use it is just as important.

The Kit

This kit is an excellent foundation to build upon. The bag has plenty of room to add or, in my case, consolidate from my other kit. 

The Emergency Trauma Kit by Everlit Survival comes with the following items:

  • 1 X Tactical EMT Nylon Molle IFAK Bag (6″ x 8.5″ x 4.5″)
  • 1 X Combat Application Tourniquet (C-A-T) GEN-7 (Official Tourniquet of the U.S. Army, NSN # 6515-01-521-7976)
  • 1 X 36 Splint Roll (36 x 4.3 / 92cm x 11cm)
  • 1 X Emergency Trauma Bandage (Pressure Dressing)
  • 1 X Z-Folded Compressed Gauze (4.5 x 4.1 yards stretched)
  • 1 X Emergency Thermal Blanket
  • 1 X Elastic Bandage
  • 1 X Triangle Bandage
  • 1 X Burn Dressing
  • 1 X Mini Size Permanent Marker
  • 1 X First Aid EMT Trauma Shears (7.2″)
  • 1 X Universal Bandage Pack
  • 1 X Transparent First Aid Tape
  • 2 X Pairs of Latex Free Disposable Gloves
  • 40 X Alcohol Pad

Add-Ons Worth Considering

Here are some options for those who would like to expand on the kit’s capability:

The Bag

The bag is available in multiple colors and is MOLLE-compatible. Due to the size, I would not mount this on a plate carrier or belt. You’d be better off attaching it to a pack. The bag is attached to the MOLLE via hook and loop, which allows one to pull it free to use it. I attached mine to my headrest with the strap, as it provides quick access.

Cons of the Kit

My only gripe is the rivet on the shears isn’t as good as the one on my primary pair. They will get the job done just my opinion in what I like to see. 

The Bottom Line on the Emergency Trauma Kit by Everlit Survival

I am happy with my purchase, which I feel offers a good bang for the buck. Those in the emergency medical profession might scoff at that and state you can put one together yourself cheaper. While that may be true—the average person does not always know what items to buy or not buy for a medical kit. Likewise, many people don’t have the time or mental bandwidth to figure out what they need in their emergency medical kit. 

With that in mind, kits like the Emergency Trauma Kit by Everlit Survival can provide the foundation to build and expand a person’s emergency medical capability. With the current climate in world affairs, having something is better than nothing. And, at a minimum, you should have a basic first aid kit in your home and vehicle.
