​​​​ First Aid Kit

In addition to an Emergency​​ Plan Kit, every location shall be equipped with a first aid kit, and, when appropriate, a snakebite kit. Every school shall have additional first aid kits available for athletic teams, field trips, and other activities. The first aid kit​ ​must be taken along to any athletic event or practice or whenever stud​ents leave the campus for any school-sponsored off-campus event​. Any first aid kit or snakebite kit taken into an area that is commonly known to be inhabited by specific poisonous snakes shall contain medically accepted snakebite remedies for that species. When determing what to include in the snakebite kit, please note that many commercial snakebite kits contain inappropriate items, such as tourniquets and snake venom suctions. Please refer to your local health authorities for the appropriate items to include in the kit.​
