DAN Boater's online store is now stocked with marine first-aid kits for every boat and cruising style.

DURHAM, N.C., Nov. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- When an injury or illness occurs at home, there's easy access to the

medicine cabinet, an emergency clinic, and 911. At sea, however, medical attention is rarely close by, creating the need to be more self-sufficient. That's why having a marine first-aid kit that's well-stocked, up-to-date, and at-the-ready is critical.

To assure they have the proper tools onboard to handle a medical emergency, recreational boaters can turn to the emergency professionals at DAN Boater. This world premier travel safety association boasts 38 years of handling medical emergencies around the world—including more than 10,000 emergency medical evacuations, over 100,000 emergency calls fielded, and more than 300,000 medical resource hours on duty.

DAN Boater's online store is now stocked with marine first-aid kits for every boat and cruising style. First aid kits are not one-size-fits-all and making the right choice depends on several factors. For example, anglers, day sailors, coastal cruisers, racers, and long-distance voyagers each have different needs based on the distance and duration of their travels. The makeup of the crew and passengers also plays an important role. Will there be kids on board? Does anyone have specific health issues—like heart problems, pulmonary diseases, etc.?

Whether its for treating minor injuries such as stings, sunburns, and cuts or for handling more significant injuries and illnesses while on the water, boaters can find the first aid solution they need at DAN Boater.

There are 8 different kit styles available in the new DAN Boater Travel Store. Some of the most popular kits are:

  • DAN O2 Cardiac Complete. This premium first-aid kit prepares boaters for any medical emergency. Packed with all the first-aid supplies required to meet U.S. Coast Guard standards for small passenger vessels, this unit includes a Jumbo D oxygen cylinder that provides 50-60 minutes of oxygen, as well as a Philips HeartStart HS1 on-site defibrillator. All items are conveniently stored in a large, durable lifetime warranty waterproof case.
  • Emergency Response Kit – ERK. Designed by DAN's team of Physicians, First Responders, and Wilderness Medics, this kit is ideal for serious sailors and cruisers. Inside the durable waterproof case is a comprehensive suite of trauma and first-aid supplies designed to handle even the worst injuries. The ERK meets U.S. Coast Guard requirements for commercial charter vessels and includes a full array of trauma components, including an Extended Care Rescue Pack O2 kit.
  • Coast Guard Complete HC 2.0. This kit packs over 200 premium first-aid components into one waterproof hard case that meets the U.S. Coast Guard's requirements for small passenger vessels. Must-have components in this kit include ammonia inhalants, CAT tourniquet, and Oronasal mask.
  • First Aid Backpack. A great option as part of a ditch bag, this well-designed backpack includes a variety of neatly organized first-aid components, with plenty of open storage area for additional supplies.
