Here’s How to Make a Car Emergency Kit

We here at Bill Roberts Chevrolet pride ourselves on the quality Chevrolet and Buick vehicles that we sell, which are protected with General Motors’ latest and highly innovative safety technology. Even so, we highly recommend that all of our customers build a car emergency kit, just in case things don’t go their way out on the road. Here’s everything you should include in your kit:

Car Emergency Kit

Tools

Some common car mishaps include a dead battery and flat tire. Make sure you have jumper cables, jacks, a lug wrench, and, of course, a spare tire. Some other tools to have on hand include a flashlight (with new batteries), a hammer, and screwdrivers.

Food and Drinks

In case you become stranded, you will want to have bottled water in the car. Also pack high-protein, nonperishable food items.

Blankets and Warm Clothes

If your car emergency happens in the winter in a cold climate, you will be grateful to have blankets in your trunk. You should also keep extra hats, gloves, coats, and scarves packed, as well.

First Aid Kit

Purchase a small first aid kit with bandages and other essentials, just in case someone gets hurt while away from home.
