If 2020 has taught us anything, it is to expect the unexpected. That is why is it crucial to get prepared before an emergency arises. We have put together a list of the top items that you should have in your emergency kit readily available in your car. A well-stocked emergency kit can provide you peace of mind that you are prepared for any unfortunate circumstances you encounter on the road.
Accidents Happen…Be Prepared.
If you have been a driver for any length of time you know that anything can happen while on the road. Your engine overheats, you get a flat tire, your battery is dead, you run out of gas, etc. While it is not possible to predict every emergency, it is easy to prepare for them.
Protect yourself and your family by having an auto emergency kit in your vehicle. Whether you build your own kit or purchase one, the goal is to be prepared with essential emergency supplies. These essential supplies can help get you back on the road or keep you safe until help arrives.
The essential emergency supplies that a car kit should include are:
- Jumper Cables
- Road Flares
- Tire Jack and Spare Tire
- Tire Pump
- Basic Toolkit
- First Aid Supplies
Be sure to check your kits at least once a year to make sure the supplies are plentiful and have not expired.
