Whether it’s summer or winter, you can never be too prepared if your car breaks down. We’ve prepared a list of six things you should always keep in your car in case of large and small emergencies.
1. Emergency Preparedness Kit – Hurricanes, floods, ice storms or tornadoes are no match for the Coghlan’s Emergency Preparedness Kit. Have one in your trunk just in case you or your family is unable to reach home.
2. Thermal Blanket – Similar to an emergency blanket, the Thermal Blanket retains your body heat and is reinforced with grommets and stitching for strength. No more emergency blankets that rip and tear easily as soon as you open them. Depending on where you are located, it could be pretty cold at night.
3. LED Headlamp – If you’re trying to isolate the cause of your breakdown, you’ll probably need both hands. Have a headlamp in your trunk for those moments when a flashlight just won’t cut it.
4. Rain poncho – It’s raining and you’re on the side of the road. Have a rain poncho handy in orange so passersby can see you while you’re trying to figure out the cause of your breakdown.
5. Gas Can – Let’s face it, the last thing you want is to be stuck with no gas and no way to get any gas back to your car. Consider having a gas can, even a small one, in your trunk for emergencies.
6. Trek I First Aid Kit – A first aid kit is a staple for the car. This kit has 23 staple items in a functional long-lasting nylon case.
Having a plan when your car breaks down or you’re far from home can make your trip more comfortable, even a little bit easier.
