Survival Kits : Car Survival Kits

Now I want to show you about a car survival
kit that you can buy. I bought this one at Wal-Mart. It was, maybe thirty dollars or
something like that. I’ll show you everything that’s in it that is going to help you out.
What I have here is a pair of jumper cables. Now, if you know how to use these, these are
very, very handy, OK. These just simply hook up to your car, another person’s car, easy
to jump your car. Next thing in here is a tow strap. This is good if your car dies or
somebody else’s car dies, you can hook it up and you can pull them out. My car has a
tow hitch on here that I use a lot to pull trucks and stuff out of snow, and they never
see it coming. They think they’re all macho and I come up with my Jetta. Next thing here
is a little glow stick. These things are great for nighttime if you don’t have any matches
or anything or a flashlight, these are great to see around look in dark and not waste batteries.
Next, personal safety right here. If you’re on the freeway and you have a flat tire, here’s
a little safety vest that makes you visible to oncoming drivers. Then we have an emergency
poncho just in case if it’s raining and you don’t have any waterproof jackets on you.
So. Those are those. Now, next we have in here. Here’s a road flashlight. That dissembles,
puts together. This is to direct to people off the side of the road if you are in harm.
It’s also great if you are out in the wilderness and something to ward off animals and stuff
like that. So. Make sure you keep that one. Next, we have a little air compressor. These
things are great. They plug right into your car’s ignition, and you can drag this all
the way around to every single one of your tires to fill up all that. Great thing about
this it also comes with a little accessory pack that you can fill up basketballs and
soccer balls and stuff. I love these things, these are great. OK, next thing we have right
here is a little self assembling road cone. These are good for safety also. A little road
cone that sets up. Piece of cake. I don’t know if you’re going to need to use it or
not. A couple other things. I actually put these in myself. Some zip ties. You always
find the need for zip ties, and so I just like to keep these on hand for different situations.
Also, and emergency blanket. These are great. Just to keep warm if you don’t have to use
your car’s heat. I always use a blanket. Because there’s no reason in wasting gas if you don’t
have to. So, layer up, take your blanket, you’ll be all set. Next thing, last thing
right here. On the front is, oh, actually we’ve got our first aid kit. This has got
a bunch of band aids, and sutures that can help you if you get a cut or something like
that. And then, last but not least, my tool kit. This is great. You’ll never know when
you’re going need it, but I have a little. This didn’t come with it, but I put it in
here myself. It’s a tire gage that you can check the pressure on your tires. Just in
case, I actually have two of them here. And then, pliers, little ratchets and other stuff,
just in case, you need to look in your Chilton guide. You have a couple of tools right here
on you to help you out. So, this is the survival pack, let’s move on to what else we have in
the trunk.

  1. thats probably not one quarter of what you need. that flashlight probably sucks, the air compressor sucks, you should have jumper cables AND a jump pack and that first aid kit is useless. If an injury is so small it only requires a band aid you can probably live with out one and if an injury requires more than a band aid it is probably very important to treat it but you don't have anything but bandaids so you're screwed

  2. Unintentional commercial for walmart. Also, get THREE safety TRIANGLES (OR MORE). And (maybe) flares, at least 2, if you do get flares.
