An emergency kit in your car is a necessity whether you are planning to do a lot of traveling or just driving your regular routes. Water – Having a water supply in your car emergency kit is even more vital than having food, since just one or two days without water can cause serious dehydration and even death, particularly in hot weather conditions.
Emergency Blanket – It may get cold at night if you’re forced to stay in your car, so a blanket can help keep you warm. Emergency Lights – If you have to get out of your car and walk to safety, you will need a light source for safety. First Aid Kit – This is one of the most important things to have in your emergency kit since serious injuries can be life threatening unless they are treated quickly. Emergency Tools – Your car emergency kit should have basic tools such as a multi-purpose knife, wrenches, collapsible shovel, lighter, duct tape and a map of the area you will be in. The biggest mistake many people make is only packing an emergency kit in their cars when they plan long trips. Emergencies often happen when you least expect them, so be prepared and make an emergency kit a permanent fixture in your vehicle. A car emergency kit is a must-have for anyone who drives- especially during the winter months.


Avoid Overexertion: Shoveling snow or pushing your car takes a lot of effort in storm conditions. The AA Essentials Car Emergency Kit is supplied in a canvas type carry bag with handles and Velcro strips for securing in a car boot.
In case disaster strikes and the roads become inaccessible, having emergency supplies at hand can spell the difference between life and death, particularly if you’re trapped in your car. You must keep at least three days worth of emergency water in your car, which is equivalent to six liters. You can get special emergency blankets or sleeping bags made of reflective material that can fold to a much smaller size for storage but will reflect up to eighty percent of your radiant body heat.
The kit that you buy should have items such as pain relievers, bandages, gauze, tape, alcohol pads and soap.
Batteries drain easily in cold weather or when you accidentally leave your lights or radio on for to long when the car is turned off.
If a dead-battery, mechanical problem, or flat tire occur when you are driving, a car emergency kit will help you manage the problem until help arrives.
Most of these essential items are available in the automotive section of our Lawn & Garden Department.
