Preparing for Auto Emergencies

If you are a responsible and safety-conscious driver, you will want to do all you can to prepare for worst-case scenarios. Most drivers understand that there is some inherent risk to driving. No matter how responsible and safe we are on the road, there are always weather and road conditions, emergency maintenance issues, and less responsible drivers to contend with, all of which could lead to serious accidents and emergency situations. You may want to consider putting together an emergency kit to keep in your car in order to be prepared for such a situation.

Emergency Roadside Kit

An emergency roadside kit is the sort of thing most drivers hope to never have to use. However, it may benefit you to put together one of your own to be ready for any accidents, emergencies, or complications that occur while out on the road. You may wish to consider including:

  • Tire repair kit
  • Jumper cables
  • Small, collapsible gas can
  • Basic tool kit
  • Items specific to your car, such as some oil if it goes through oil quickly
  • Flares and/or cones
  • Reflective gear
  • First aid supplies
  • Non-perishable food and bottled water
  • Blankets
  • Gloves, poncho, and other cold-weather survival gear

Items such as cold-weather survival gear allow you to personalize your kit to best serve you based on your location and personal needs.
