What Should You Keep in the Car?

Every vehicle should have an emergency supply kit in the trunk. Kits should be checked every six months, and expired items should be replaced regularly. Vehicle emergency supply kits should include:

● A properly inflated spare tire, wheel wrench and tripod jack
● Jumper cables
● Tool kit and/or a multipurpose utility tool
● Flashlight and extra batteries
● Reflective triangles and brightly colored cloth to make your vehicle more visible
● Compass
● First aid kit with gauze, tape, bandages, antibiotic ointment, aspirin, a blanket, nonlatex gloves, scissors, hydrocortisone, thermometer, tweezers and instant cold compress
● Nonperishable, high-energy foods, such as unsalted nuts, dried fruits and hard candy
● Drinking water
● Reflective vest in case you need to walk to get help
● Car charger for your cell phone
● Fire extinguisher
● Duct tape
● Rain poncho
● Snow brush
● Shovel
● Windshield washer fluid
● Warm clothing
● Cat litter for traction
● Blankets

It's also a good idea to keep family and emergency phone numbers, including your auto insurance provider and a towing company, in your phone.
