About Direct First Aid

Nations discount provider of First Aid Supplies

Your Friends at Direct First AidEstablished as a corporation in 1989, Direct First Aid Supply, Inc. is located in North Babylon, Long Island N.Y.  The owner started the company in her living room. At the time, she admitted “New York was certainly a tough place to start a business, especially selling common products like first aid supplies.” But she was persistent; “I just got on the phone and made 50 calls a day and I was not a polished salesperson.” She said people could sense her sincerity and wanted to give her a chance to earn credibility.

Hard work paid off and the business started to thrive. Months later she had enough customers to move into an office. “I realized that if you deliver a great product at a great price you earn the trust of your customers. People want to be treated fairly and they want a company they can depend on.”

Our mission is to establish a trusted partnership with our customers.

Direct First Aid provides on-site van service for local Long Island, NY customers and ships orders throughout the U.S.  If a customer would like to receive our courtesy on-site service we visit your location every 6 to 8 weeks and check your kit for needed supplies which are then replenished with your approval. The kit is cleaned and organized.  Old expired products are purged so that your products are valid when needed. Please contact us to receive this service.

How Are We Different?

Most first aid companies sell ‘pre-packed first aid kits’. The problem is they typically contain too many low cost items and may not be suited for your particular type of business. The food service industry for instance, has many specialty items that should be included. When we prepare a first aid kit we include specific items for your type of business. All sizes of kits are prepared on premise by our team to suit the needs of our customers.
