Best Items to Pack in An Emergency Kit

As new vehicle models evolve, they’re generally becoming more reliable. However, no matter how advanced cars become, no number of upgrades can prevent accidents or break downs from occurring. Accidents, mechanical issues, and flat tires happen when you least expect it. This is one reason why keeping an emergency kit in your trunk is a smart move, especially if you have a road trip planned. Below are a few items that would be a great addition to an emergency kit:  

 A First Aid Kit 
First aid kits are useful if you or anyone around you sustains any minor injuries. First aid kits have pain relievers, scissors, antiseptics, Band-Aids, and more. These items are a great way to stay prepared in case of any emergencies.  

 Flash Light
 If it’s dark and you’re stuck on the side of the road, a flashlight is great to have to flag someone down. A flashlight can also come in handy if you need to check your engine or change a tire. Always make sure to pack extra batteries as well. 

Portable Jump Starter
Jumper cables are great to have stored in the trunk, but they can render themselves useless if there aren’t any other cars nearby. If you find yourself stuck in the middle of nowhere needing a jump, a portable jump starter is a perfect item to have on standby.  

Fire Extinguisher 
Your car needs gasoline to power the engine. Gasoline is combustible, and when combustibles are involved, it’s always a great idea to keep a fire extinguisher nearby. Car accidents can lead to small fires and, without an extinguisher, can escalate into a life-threatening situation.

Reflectors 
If an accident happens or you find yourself with mechanical issues on the side of the road, it’s essential to notify other drivers. Standing on the side of the road is extremely dangerous, especially with other vehicles flying by. Reflectors can help inform other drivers in oncoming traffic, so they know to be aware of any hazards.
