Upon request CPS will provide participating researchers with a field first aid kit with over-the-counter drugs and supplies. Please note that no prescription drugs are issued. If the PI wishes to take prescription drugs into the field, they must contact their personal physician. This kit will be issued to the Principal Investigator or lead field team member, and will become their responsibility for use in the field. The kit must be returned to CPS at the end of each field season. CPS will maintain the kits and refurbish them prior to re-issue.

Additional services can also be arranged if necessary.
