Emergency Car Kit Must Haves

When the temperatures start to drop, getting stuck on the side of the road becomes even more dangerous. That is why it is essential to have an emergency kit in your car. If you’re putting together your own emergency kit, here are few necessities you will want to include.


  • Jumper cables
  • First-aid kit
  • Blankets
  • Warm gloves
  • Ice scraper
  • Work gloves
  • Duct tape
  • Tools to repair a flat tire
  • Extra fluids
  • Gas can
  • Road flares
  • Towing straps
  • Non-perishable high-energy food (nuts, granola bars, packets of tuna, etc.)
  • Water and Gatorade
  • Flashlight with extra batteries
  • Car charger for cell phone
  • Spare cell phone with extra battery
  • Rain poncho
  • Diapers and formula (if you have a baby)
  • Small shovel
  • Extra cash and quarters
  • Change of clothes

This list might seem like a lot, but you should be able to store most of these items in a small container in the back seat or trunk of your vehicle. And, we would all probably sacrifice some cargo space for extra peace of mind. In addition to having the necessary supplies, you want to make sure your vehicle is ready.
