Red Cross Shelter Nursing Kit and First Aid Station is quickly becoming the national standard for disaster preparedness
and shelter management for groups up to 500 people. Please note: This kit is only available for purchase to Red Cross Chapters. Please see our other great shelter and advanced kits if you are not an ARC chapter. This kit was designed and perfected specifically for ARC based upon their requirements and protocols at Red Cross shelters or running first aid stations for different events.
Supplied to not only to handle dozens
of minor injuries and ailments but also to respond to more serious or
life-threatening injuries until advanced care can arrive for
This disaster shelter kit was specially designed by our disaster
expert who has actually run several disaster shelters (One shelter with
up to 2,000 people).
Every ARC Chapter should at minimum, have a disaster shelter nursing kit for each County and one for each potential shelter ready for use.
The days of waiting for shelter supplies to arrive from out of state
are over. When a disaster shelter is activated, it needs to be supplied
and set up with in 2-3 hours. Each chapter should have at least some
supplies and organization to immediately open two shelters for 500 people each.
Unfortunately most Red Cross Chapters don't have the
supplies on hand or staff to set up a shelter of more than 100 people,
much less opening multiple shelters across a counties without additional supplies (sometimes trucked days away from the disaster)
Our ARC Shelter Kit have been purchased and used across the country for years. They have been used in Super Storm Sandy and other disasters. It functions as a one-kit solution when
setting up the shelter and will handle dozens of minor injuries and
ailments as well as a major injury. Laypeople and
skilled professionals alike have appreciated the generous selection.
The kit can be set up in a small area (10 x 15 room space, or partitioned private area) as the nurse station just add signage. Also designed to be used for injuries when help may be delayed and with all age groups.
