Emergency Survival Gear: In the Car


Vehicle related emergencies can occur any
time and range from the routine, like running out of gas, to the extreme, such as serious
wrecks. You might even find yourself temporarily stranded because of weather. It’s good to
keep some things in your vehicle to help deal with these situations. Every vehicle should
have at least some jumper cables, a small fire extinguisher and a solid tire tool onboard.
Other items might include a first aid kit, some snack food, bottled water and an emergency
tire inflator that could help you reach the next gas station or repair shop. A few orange
cones or reflectors or some other orange object to signal hazard or distress could really
pay off too. Having some extra batteries or 12 volt adapter, like the one found in the
Brownells ESG Essential Power Kit, could help you stay in contact our call for help. As
the seasons change you should adjust your vehicle’s emergency kit. Add more bottled
water in the summer and a snow shovel warm hat and gloves in winter. A wool blanket or
maybe an SOL two-person emergency bivvy could make a cold night spent in your car more bearable.
Make your emergency car kit light, portable, and adjust it to the area conditions where
you travel the most. It could help you make it to your intended destination alive and
whole.
