Be Prepared for an Emergency

What should you keep in your vehicle in case of an emergency? Most drivers keep a spare tire and a jack, but did you know there are several more items for safety that you should keep in your vehicle as well?

Drivers should always carry a first-aid kit, a blanket, bottled water, a gas can, and flares in their vehicle at all times. The need for a first-aid kit, gas can, and flares are obvious, but what about the blanket and bottled water? If you were to become stranded on cold night in the middle of nowhere and your vehicle was out of gas, the blanket would come in handy to keep you warm until help arrives. The bottled water in case you become stranded in a hot or desert type of area.

Always consider safety and keep these standard items in your vehicle in case of an emergency. As the old adage goes, better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it.
