Our family has a bleeding disorder and when I found out that most ambulances do not carry tourniquets anymore that scared me. I asked them what I should do and they said to make sure we have one in our home in our first aid kit, in the car, and to make sure it can be found easily in case of emergency.
This is also great to have on hand if you are a hiker, or mountain climber. I suggest anyone who has a bleeding disorder have one of these on hand just in case.
Like my mother said better to be safe then sorry. This kit also comes with a trauma bandage and a full size emergency blanket.
