Everything you Need for A Car Emergency Kit

The basics of an emergency kit usually includes jumper cables, so you can get your battery started or help someone else do the same. You’ll also find a flashlight with extra batteries useful if you’re caught in the dark. A first-aid kit is handy for any bumps, scratches or cuts that are small enough to take care of while you’re waiting for help. Other emergency items include:

  • AM/FM radio
  • Sand/cat litter to get unstuck
  • Shovel
  • Extra warm clothes

Your emergency kit should include things to keep your family safe, too. Blankets, hands warmers, power bars and a few bottles of water will keep you warm and hydrated if you’re stuck in a snowbank and waiting for help. In the technological era, you might have a spare battery for your cell phone to make sure you can reach help. A car/lighter adapter and charger is also useful if your battery works but you can’t move your car.
