Vehicle Emergency Travel Kit
Having spent a great deal of time traveling I will tell you that the weather or an accident can close a road for hours, even traping you overnight. I have lived it and simply could not move forward or backward for hours on end.
Due to events out of our control like weather, accidents, and other unseen issues when traveling on our roads and highways, you must be prepared for any emergency issue.
Most people aren’t prepared for an issue on the road, but more and more are becoming cognizant of having an in-vehicle emergency kit in the event of severe weather or other major issues when on the road.
Every vehicle should have an emergency supply kit in the trunk. Kits should be checked every six months, and expired items should be replaced regularly.
A Vehicle emergency supply kit should include the following:
- Cell phone and extra batteries
- First aid kit
- Jumper cables
- Spare tire
- Tire inflator and sealer
- Flashlight and spare batteries
- Multi-purpose tool or knife
- Drinking water
- Non-perishable snacks
- Blankets or sleeping bags
- Extra car fluids (oil, coolant, windshield washer fluid)
- Tow rope or chain
- Fire extinguisher
- Rain poncho or umbrella
- Hand-crank radio or cell phone charger
- Reflective vest or brightly colored clothing
- Duct tape
- Gloves and work gloves
- Car Emergency Escape Safety Hammer Seat Belt Cutter Car Accessories
- Map and compass or GPS device
- Personal medication
- Food for your pet, if applicable.
