Personal Injury Attorney | The “When You’re Stranded” Kit!

If you’re off the main roads, car trouble or a natural disaster can leave you stranded and waiting for help. Keep these road-kit items in the car just in case the unexpected happens:

  • Fire extinguisher: You can help stop small fires from spreading.
  • Smartphone charger: By now we’ll assume most people keep their smartphones on them, so we won’t bother suggesting that. But how about keeping a car-battery-powered charger in the glove box?
  • Road flares: At night, you can use flares to flag motorists and alert them that you’re in some kind of trouble.
  • Flat tire kit or tire-puncture sealant: The toolkit can fix a flat tire in a flash. If you don’t have one, you can spray some tire sealant on a minor flat to help you get to a mechanic.
  • Jumper cables: You’ll be a Good Samaritan short of a working battery so long as you keep jumper cables in the trunk.
  • Flashlight: A powerful and weatherproof model will ensure that you’ll at least have light for as long as you’re marooned. Extra batteries never hurt, either.
  • Medications: Keep all necessary prescription drugs on-hand, especially if you have young children with you.
  • Food and water: Non-perishables like granola bars will help you keep your energy and wits about you for long waits. One gallon of water a day per person should maintain proper hydration.
