What To Include In Your Vehicle Emergency Kit

While most often then not, usually a vehicle emergency kit just sits in your trucks and takes up space. But be thankful if you have never had to pull it out and use it. However, it is the best thing you can have while traveling, just in case of an emergency. 

Vehicle Emergency Kit

Having one of these kits can be a big help in many situations. Stocking up on essentials can be a god-send whether you find yourself stranded on the side of the road because of an accident, mechanical breakdown, or even helping out a friend in that situation. No matter what the situation is, let us help you pack your vehicle emergency kit. 

 

Flares and Other Safety Items

 

The best way to give caution to other drivers if you are stuck in an incident, is to have road flares of safety triangles in your bag. Alerting others is a good thing to do in these situations. These bright and reflecting objects should be spread out a few feet from each other, and with enough room for other drivers to see them and maneuver around. 

 

Cables

 

Next thing to make sure you have packed is jumper cables. A lot of times when emergencies happen is when a car battery dies. In order to not be stranded for hours until someone comes to your rescue, make sure you have a set of jumper cables. Connecting these to another vehicle will only take some of your time, compared to waiting for hours on end. With this, you’ll be back on the road in no time.

 

Shovel

 

Not usually the first thing to think of when filling up that emergency kit, but it can come in handy. It can dig you out of a rough situation whether it’s dirt or snow.

 

Duct Tape

 

We don’t have a specific use for this one, but duct tape comes in handy as a temporary fix of a lot of things. Make sure you a have a roll of this in your vehicle emergency kit.
