What Should You Add to Your Vehicle’s Emergency Kit?

Driving on the open road comes with its challenges. Whether you are driving a short distance across town or a long distance across the country, you should be fully stocked with an emergency kit. When you bring along items, you’re more equipped to handle unexpected breakdowns better. Every automobile should have the following things in its emergency kit:

  • Tire pressure gauge
  • Spare tire, wheel wrench and tripod jack - for flats on the road
  • Jumper cables - in case your battery dies unexpectedly
  • Tool kit and/or a multipurpose utility tool
  • Flashlight with batteries
  • Reflective triangles - to make your vehicle more visible if it breaks down at night
  • Compass
  • Paper map
  • First aid kit - with bandages, ointment, gloves, tweezers, aspirin, gauze, hydrocortisone, thermometer, tweezers, and any other items that may help with unexpected pain or sickness on the road
  • Extra car fluid - including gasoline, windshield washer fluid, coolant, etc.
  • Fire extinguisher
  • Nonperishable foods and snacks
  • Drinking water
  • Portable charger
  • Rain poncho
  • Snow brush and ice scraper
  • Warm clothing and mittens and hats
  • Blankets
  • Tow chain or strap
  • Kitty litter or sand - in case you get stuck in snow
  • Shovel
  • Emergency contacts - family members, insurance company, and roadside assistance
