Preparedness

Posted: February 4, 2013 in Uncategorized

Whether you are driving across town or going on an extended road trip you should always be prepared for anything.  You never know if you’re going to get in a wreck or get stranded.  So what are some things that you should carry in your car just in case and incident like this would happen?

Well the first item you would want to have on hand is water.  Hydration is key if you are stranded.  For food you would want to carry any meal replacement bars or protein bars.  These carry many vital nutrients that you would need.  The ER Emergency Food Bar claims to provide 72 hours of nutrition and has a shelf life of five years.  Next, you will want to pack a blanket of some sort.  If you are out in a cold climate you have to keep warm, keeping a blanket is a great thing to have in your car anyway because you never know when you will need it!  You might need it to sit on for a football game, or when your heater goes out in your car! A flashlight is very important to keep in your car.  If your car breaks down the light may be able to help you fix whatever is broken.  A generator flashlight is recommended because it has a longer lasting life. 

You might have gotten into a car crash or just need some medical help for any reason.  Keeping a first aid kit in your car is something everyone should have handy. A tool kit is also handy if you have a car because you might have a small issue that could be easily fixed if you have the right tools.  Places like Wal-Mart have cheap little bags that have vital tools and wires you would need for your car if there were problems. 

Now hopefully you will never have to use this kit but it is something just to keep you prepared!
