Where to buy a first aid kit??

I'm putting together the kit I need to have my rib coded, and I need to know a good place to get hold of the "Category 3 Stores" needed for Category 4 Coding. I know I need to carry other things as well, but I could do with getting hold of the minimum kit all at the same time.
Cheers,

Nick

Nick,

I don't know the full requirements for a coded kit, but if you do, then I use the following company for all my medical / emergency needs. They have always been really good and seem pretty competitive.

http://www.spservices.co.uk/

If you are looking for the actual requirements for the kit you might be better positing a note in the commercial operators forum.

Cheers

Mike

This Limk might be of use to you with your coding effort.

Unfortunately I had a boat stolen, which we were about to code, and it is looking unlikely that the boat will be being replaced. I therefore have a great deal of code ready equipment for a RIB (inc Liferaft, grab bag.EPIRB etc!) which is surplus to my requirements if you are interested.!

First aid kits are available from Ocean Safety but I think they come vacuum packed from a firm in Cardiff I'll come back with the name after having a look at the package

I bought a Category "C" First Aid Kit from Dave Hichman of this parish, but it can only be purchased after you have completed the RYA first aid course.

Cosalt have branches around the country I think, and they supply all of the stuff needed for coding.

You will need a CAT C first aid kit. These can be purchased from Ocean Safefy and are vacuum packed.

Hi,
Yes I can supply them. They are approx 35.00 but will have to check.

Nick, you do not have to do the 1st Aid course, BUT it benefits you as you are instructed in the use of the Cat 3 drugs that are in the Cat 3 1st aid kits.

Are there any kits better suited to RIBs??? Looking at the cat C type they seem, more designed for liferafts - 30 anti shite and 50 Ibuoprofen seem a bit over the top for 12 people on a boat for a few hours.

There also seems to be a lack of certain items that could be quite usefull = like eyewash stuff and burn gel etc or even some anti histamenes.

Are you allowed to make up your own kit or do you HAVE to buy the approved type???

You can do what ever you like on your own rib, but for a coded vessel there is a list of what must be carried so convienent just to buy the complete kit, then carry a spare one from Boots to actaully use. Afterall you don't wan't to open a 35 first aid kit for someone with a cut finger.
