1. Portable Jump Starter
The last time your car battery died did you have to call someone to get it jumped? Well not anymore!. Advances in battery technology have enabled devices that let you jump your car all by yourself. Most of them have charges that last 30 days or so. Some even have built in flashlights and USB chargers for your devices too!
2. Emergency Blanket
These emergency blankets take up practically no space and could be the difference between life and death if you get stranded. They can keep you warm when you’re cold, give you shade when it’s too hot, and act as a poncho in the rain. Having a set of these in the car for you and your family is a no-brainer.
3. Trauma Kit
A good trauma kit is a must have for any vehicle. Accidents happen and you never know when you’ll be a victim or when you might witness one and have the chance to save a life. Many people prefer to assemble their own trauma kits which is great. Just make sure to include a tourniquet.
4. Fire Extinguisher
You don’t need to carry a full-size extinguisher but you should definitely keep a small one in you car just in case. Make sure the extinguisher you pick is rated for both flammable liquids and electrical fires. We recommend placing it close to your driver seat if possible so it is within easy reach.
Water is something that most people take for granted. They never realize how important it is until they need it. I recommend carrying at least 2 gallons with you at all times, more if you have a family. Water is cheap so you really have no reason not to stock it!
That’s all for this list. What else do you like to keep in your vehicle?
