Your Car Safety Kit: Everything You Need

 

If you don’t have a car emergency kit, the best time to assemble one is NOW. Here is what we recommend you include.

Electronics & Tools

Cell Phone Car Charger

Double check that the charger is compatible with your car, and input numbers for services like AAA in your contacts list.

Flashlight and Extra Batteries

Don’t drain your phone battery by using its flashlight — keep a regular flashlight on hand.

Basic Tool Set

A small travel tool kit is always a good idea!

Shovel

You can buy foldable shovels online that don’t take up too much room in the trunk.

Car Tools

Jumper Cables

Make sure that you have the right gauge for your vehicle!

Traction Aid 

Good, inexpensive aids include sand, salt, and non-clumping cat litter, or you can buy traction pads.

Road Flares and Reflectors

If you get in an accident, these will draw attention to you so you can either get help or ensure cars avoid your vehicle.

Ice Scraper

As any Alaskan knows, having a durable, strong scraper that will stand the test of time is vital!

Car Escape Tools

Have a seatbelt cutter and window breaker near the front seat or in the glove compartment — it could save your life!

Safety Gear

First Aid Kit

If there’s one thing you need, it’s this! Make sure your kit includes bandages, medical tape, antibiotic ointment, gauze, and antiseptic wipes.

Drinking Water & Snacks

Non-perishable, high energy foods like nuts, jerky, and dried fruit are ideal.

Pet Supplies

Ever have pets in the car with you? Make sure you have supplies and food for them, as well.

Warm Clothing

Always keep something warm to wear in your vehicle. If your car breaks down in cold weather, you’ll need it.

Reflective Vest

If you need to walk for help, reflective gear can keep you safe from passing cars.

Other Items

Road Maps

A GPS is great, but if it’s not working or your phone dies, a traditional road map will come in handy.

Duct Tape

Duct tape has many uses in an emergency, from holding a bumper in place, to temporarily containing engine leaks, to bandaging wounds.
