Looks pretty good, 

 

You might want to add a thermometer, sanitary napkins and tampons and tongue depressors. 

 

You can remove about 30 gloves. You will only need them one pair at a time. 

 

I don't know what MFR's are allowed to do.

 

You might want to check what meds you can give and take anything that are not authorized to give out of your bag.

 

Also make sure you can use OPA and NPS before you put them in someone.

Doesn't your CERT team have any recommendations for you?  You keep mentioning CERT but don't seem to be using any of those resources.

What is this CERT thing you speak of?

I'm guessing he means this.  I had to look it up, too.
