The Importance of Having a Roadside Emergency Kit

Having a roadside emergency kit available in case of an emergency could save your life and someone else. Depending on whether you are driving a long distance or a short distance will modify the items you will need. Of course road side assistance is always a great option to have, but it can take hours to receive help. It is important to have necessities in case of an accident or break down, just in case.

For short distances you should have: a cell phone, first aid kit, fire extinguisher, flares or warning light, tire gauge, jack and lug wrench, oil, coolant, flashlight, blanket, tool kit, tire inflator, paper towels, pen and paper, energy bars, and bottled water. Pack these items well, so that they are not rolling around the trunk of your vehicle. It is important to familiarize yourself with everything inside your emergency kit, before needing to use them.
