Being ready to deal with injuries is another important component of preparedness.   FEMA recommends that everyone learn basic first-aid techniques.  Most of us already have these skills.  Clean and bandage a skinned knee, put a band-aid on a small cut, use an ice pack to reduce swelling, etc.  These are all things we do without considering ourselves to be administering first aid.  Don't underestimate your abilities when it comes to first aid!  Over the past year, new first aid kits have been installed throughout the CLP campus.  With the exception of the restrooms, every room on campus now contains a first aid kit.  These kits contain supplies suited to dealing with the minor bumps and scrapes that are a part of everyday life.   Don't forget, even a simple band-aid is first aid.
