First aid kit being modernized!
IN CASE YOU HAVEN'T HEARD, THE ARMY IS MODERNIZING AIRCRAFT FIRST AID KITS.
THE AVIATION MAINTENANCE ACTION MESSAGE (AMAM GEN-12-AMAM-07) HAS ALL THE DETAILS ON HOW TO UPDATE YOUR KITS.
Make a note that the general purpose first aid kit, NSN 6545-00-919-6650, is being replaced by the panel-mounted first aid kits (PMFAK), NSN 6545-01-599-5586. If your aircraft does not have the PMFAK installed, the AMAM does not apply.
A DA Form 2028 has been submitted to AMCOM to add the NSN and the first aid components to TM 1-1500-204-23-1, General Aircraft Maintenance.
ALSE folks should check out the aviation AMAM message so they can build the kits. Go to: https://asmprd.redstone.army.mil
After logging in, click on Aviation, then Recent Aviation Messages to access the message.
If you reuse the old case, make sure you stencil it with the new NSN. The kits will be ready to order by the first quarter of fiscal year 2013, but the individual components for the new PMFAKs are in the supply system now.
