Show You Our First Aid Kit

Hello everyone!
I will introduce the first aid kit that I always carry during tours on Amami Oshima. Nature tours take place in nature, and it’s unpredictable what might happen at any time. Therefore, I carry tools that anticipate possible injuries.

Let me introduce each item I have prepared:

  • Adhesive bandages
  • Tourniquet
  • Gauze
  • Bandage
  • Triangular bandage
  • Safety pins
  • Scissors
  • Disposable gloves
  • Alcohol cotton
  • Wet wipes
  • Cotton swabs
  • Tweezers
  • Tape
  • Aluminum blanket
  • Whistle
  • Poison remover

Regarding the last item, poison remover, I carry it in case of a snake bite, as Amami Oshima has Habu snakes. Fortunately, I have never had to use it. If bitten, I would perform first aid by extracting the venom.

Injuries during tours can happen, so we conduct thorough advance inspections, and gear preparation, and communicate essential information to customers to minimize risks. However, despite these efforts, accidents or injuries cannot be eliminated, so we also undergo lifesaving training and carry a first aid kit like this to be prepared.
