TIP: What To Keep In Your Vehicle

What to Keep in Your Vehicle

First Aid Kit

If you put your own emergency car kit together, make sure none of the items are in glass bottles or vials—put them in plastic containers with tight lids instead.

Use the suggested items below to build your own first-aid kit:
Absorbent compress dressings
Adhesive bandages (assorted sizes)
Adhesive cloth tape
Antibiotic ointment packets
Antiseptic wipe packets
Packets of aspirin
Blanket (space blanket)
Breathing barrier (with one-way valve)
Instant cold compress
Pair of non-latex gloves
Hydrocortisone ointment packets
Roller bandage
Sterile gauze pads
Oral thermometer (non-mercury/non-glass)
Triangular bandages
First-aid instruction booklet

Vehicle Tool Kit

A good vehicle tool kit includes:
Screwdrivers—Phillips and flat head
Set of good socket wrenches
Duct tape
Electrical wire tape
Electrical wire spray
Flashlight with extra batteries
Small fire extinguisher
Jumper cables

Make sure there's a jack and a lug wrench in the vehicle and that the spare tire (if equipped with spare) is inflated to its proper pressure. See owner's manual for recommended tire pressure numbers.
