Blankets, Clothes & Heat
2. Wool Blanket
No matter what the weather is, people tend to sleep under a blanket or sheet, right? The same rule applies here. A wool blanket can keep you warm and protected from the elements should your vehicle break down or if you're in an accident.
3. Space Blanket
A space blanket is much more compact, but can keep you warm by reflecting your body heat and keeping it beneath the blanket. Don't rely on just the space blanket if you're outside in the cold! It has little or no insulation which means it's best combined with the wool blanket for proper safety and warmth.
A spare set of jeans and a jacket/plain shirt are perfect for an emergency, whether that's a stain or for staying dry!

6. Snack Items
Nut bars and canned goods are perfect for the average emergency kit because of their ease of access and energy intake they can give the body. Don't forget the can opener!
Lights & Energy
9. Glow Sticks & Flares/Road Triangles
Glow sticks are a mainstay item so that you don't need to rely on an electrical source of power for light. If your car breaks down, road flares and reflective triangles can signal other drivers of your situation & keep the site luminous - keeping you from sitting in the dark!
A tool kit is the centerpiece to the emergency bag. It should include several items that can be used in nearly every situation!
