Roadside Emergency Kit
Roadside emergency kits are the sort of thing that one hopes to never have to use, and there is a chance that you and your loved ones will never actually need such a thing. However, flat tires, collisions, and other automobile trouble can occur without warning, regardless of how skilled you may be as a driver. The safest solution for you and your family is to be prepared for any common auto emergencies. You can even tailor your kit to be especially helpful based on your geographic location and weather patterns.
Building Your Kit
Considering the location of Racine, it may be pertinent to include supplies to help drivers withstand extreme cold, ice, and snow. It may be best to include the following items in your kit:
- First aid kit
- Jumper cables
- Small plastic gas container
- Bottled water
- Long-lasting, easy to consume food items, such as energy bars
- Reflective gear you can put on your person if you must stand close to traffic
- Rain gear
You may also want to consider keeping some of your warmest boots in your car, a handheld charging device for your cell phone, and some simple tools, such as a utility knife and hammer. No one likes to think about worst-case scenarios when such a kit might be needed, but if some type of accident should leave you stranded along a road somewhere, you may be very happy for you or your family to have prepared for such a situation.
