This is a gun forum.

Not only do we need to defend ourselves, but there may come a time to render aid to injured. I remember some of my military first aid training.

Should I consider a pre-packaged kit or build my own?

I think that depends on you. Most prepackaged kits come with ann abundance of things you never use. My wife is a nurse, so she builds them for us. If it were me, I would have to buy premade to make sure I get the right stuff.

I already had a lot of "stuff" that's usually included in some of the kits so I just build my own. Also you might want to consider having 2-3 of them. Car/Home/work....

And training would not hurt a bit.

Looking around. I'm not finding much more than simple CPR. This is good, but not enough.

Do you have any recommendations for classes that include wound dressing?

You might try the Red Cross.They do the training for the first aid people where I worked. Check with EMTs cops and firemen. They should have some good resources in your area. Where ever that is.

In the past I've done small prefab kits and added Quik-Clot pads and gauze. Make sure you tie the package into the bandage so the professionals know you've used it.

I was looking for something to take in the woods with me and the chainsaw.

Here are some pre-packaged hemorrhage kits.
