Most of us are not prepared for an emergency situation to occur when we are in our vehicles. An emergency situation or crisis can occur at any time, being prepared is important. Here is our list of the most important things you should keep in your car at all times.
Always keep a blanket stashed somewhere in your car, no matter the season. If you have to pass a few hours in your car without heat, you’ll want a blanket to help keep yourself comfortable and warm.
Bottles of water are necessary for in a situation where you might be stuck in your vehicle for awhile.
Granola bars and anything that isn’t going to perish is great to keep on-hand in your vehicle. Just keep a few in your glove compartment for easy access. Having a blood sugar crash during a crisis will only escalate the issue.
If you’re having car troubles at night, you are going to be thankful when you remember you have a flashlight tucked away.
Keep a few extra batteries for things like your flashlight in a small container. The flashlight would only be helpful if the batteries in it still work!
Messes are inevitable. Especially if you regularly have other passengers in your vehicle. Keeping Clorox wipes handy will give you the ability to clean up the mess quickly.
This is another item that is extra important for when you frequently have extra passengers in your vehicle.
First Aid Kit
A few basic first-aid items such as bandages, gauze, antiseptic wipes, adhesive tape, a splint, and ibuprofen can keep situations manageable. Nobody wants to need these items, but when the situation arises you will be thankful that you are prepared.
