Essentials For Your Roadside Emergency Kit

If you are a driver, you never know when you may encounter an emergency on the road.  If you should ever break down, a roadside emergency kit is a must. Here are some essential items that you should include in your kit:

  • No-spill gas can (2-5 gal.)
  • Jumper cables (12-20’, be sure to get the right gauge for your vehicle)
  • Roadside flares/glowsticks (4, check out these reusable LED flares)
  • Flat tire inflation canister (non-explosive)
  • Spare tire and jack
  • First aid kit
  • Bottled water (2-3 gal.)
  • Flashlight and extra batteries or flashlight that doesn’t need batteries
  • Small, foldable shovel
  • Car escape tool  (incl. seatbelt cutter and window breaker)
  • Blankets
  • Two quarts of oil
  • Roll of duct tape
  • Paper towels / rags
  • Multipurpose tool
  • Seasonal supplies (rain gear, umbrella, ice scraper etc.)

Another essential to keep you safe in case of a breakdown or emergency is installing the T3 Vehicle Security System in your car.  T3 alerts you immediately if your car has an emergency or unauthorized movement. You call the T3 to connect a 3-way call to the 911-Operator located closest to your car – even if you are thousands of miles away.  You are talking directly to police within seconds of the emergency. No call center is used – saving you time and money. LoJack® doesn’t do this. OnStar® doesn’t do this.  No other anti-theft system can do this.
