8 Safety Items to have in your Emergency Kit


When you head out on the road what are the safety related items you think about? Obviously, you think about your seatbelts, airbags, and headlights, but have you considered putting together an emergency kit? During an emergency situation, minor or major, having these items available in your car can protect you and your passengers and give you peace of mind.


Jumper cables.
You know that ‘click’ sound. We’ve all heard it. It’s the sound you get when your engine won’t turn over. Make sure you have some jumper cables handy so you can flag down a passer-by, a cab, or a friend, connect the leads and be on your way.

Check your tires.
Worn out tires and tires with thin treads could lead to a potential hazard on wet roadways, leading to hydroplaning and disaster. Check your car’s tread depth. While you’re at it, check your tire pressure with a new accurate gauge. .

Owner’s manual.
From warning light explanations to air pressure tips to letting you know exactly what type of oil your car needs, your owner’s manual is a critical reference guide. When your car is in trouble it’s often your first source of how-to information to get you out of an unfamiliar situation.

First-aid Kit.
Having a fully stocked kit with gauze, bandages, antiseptic wipes, sterilized pads, and a first-aid manual simply makes sense. A minor scratch or a more serious situation may occur, or you may encounter one along your road trip, so having a first-aid kit may make a difference.

Utility knife or Swiss Army Knife.
These little gadgets really do have a thousand uses. Tweezers, screwdriver, knife, and more, you just never know what you might need.
Shop Tools


Duct tape.
A broken latch, a big crack, a leaky hose, these things can happen when you’re on the road. What do you do before you can get back to your garage or to a shop for repairs? Tape it up.


Snacks?
Yes! We have heard stories about people who spent hours driving around looking for something to eat or who have been stuck in stalled traffic lines for hours on the highway without food. Low blood sugar is nothing to ignore. Granola bars, pretzels, nuts, and fruit can make situations like this a lot easier to deal with. Pack a few snacks with you before you head out on the road.


Towels, paper towels and blanket
Flashlight and fresh batteries. This may seem like a no-brainer item for night time emergencies, but it can really be helpful during the day too when you have to check under the hood or under your car for leaks and other problems. Check your batteries to make sure they’re still fresh. TIP: While you’re at it, it may be a good idea to keep a battery charger for your cell phone as well. Spare batteries and even solar chargers are available
