Vehicle Emergency Kit

Depending on your situation, where you live and where you are driving to, your vehicle emergency kit needs will vary. You should plan on being able to spend a few hours, or even a couple days in some cases, in your car. First, make sure you have the essentials such as water, food, and warmth (blankets, jackets, gloves, etc). Other basic items include a first aid kit, emergency light, tools and other accessories.

Water: Most people can actually survive days without food, but your body will dehydrate without water.

Food: High-calorie energy bars are a good option for emergency rations.

Warmth: Make sure to keep 6 to 20 hour warm packs, wool blankets, emergency bags, and emergency blankets in your vehicle.

First Aid Kit: There are many small basic kits available.

Light: Be sure to keep charged batteries in the flashlight or purchase a flashlight that uses a hand-crank to charge.

Tools: Keep basic tools on hand for emergency repairs.

Fire Extinguisher: Get one that is A:B:C rated and UL listed. A 2.5 pound fire extinguisher is a common size for passenger vehicles.

Warning Triangles or Flares: These make changing a flat tire on the side of the road much safer.
