Create Your Own Roadside Emergency Kit for Your Car

Create Your Own Roadside Emergency Kit for Your Car

Sadly, accidents do happen, as do car problems and breakdowns. The best way to prepare for such scenarios – besides properly maintaining your car – is by keeping a roadside emergency kit in your car at all times.

A roadside emergency kit should include basic items to help get you back on the road safely, as well as provide sustenance and supplies for your safety and health in case it takes a while to get back on the road.

A roadside emergency kit should include:

  • Blanket
  • Flashlight and extra batteries
  • Tire inflator and pressure gauge
  • Ice scraper
  • Bottled water
  • Granola bars or other nonperishable food items
  • Rags
  • Pen and paper
  • Shovel
  • Flares
  • Jumper cables
  • First aid kit

The best way to prevent an emergency is to plan for one. For more information on automobile safety and maintenance, contact Wiygul Automotive Clinic.
