Creating the Ultimate Emergency Kit

Accidents happen! It’s just part of life but being prepared for those accidents is key. Your safety is important to us here at Spieler’s Incorporated. That is why we have put together a list of items to help you create your emergency kit for your car. In this week’s blog, the most trusted car dealer in mid-Missouri will list out the items for the ultimate emergency kit.

First Aid

This really should go unmentioned, but it's often overlooked. A first aid kit, complete with gauze, band-aids, and medical tape/antibiotic ointment really goes a long way in treating those accidental scrapes one can obtain while troubleshooting any emergency.


No matter what the weather is, people tend to sleep under a blanket or sheet, right? The same rule applies here. A blanket can keep you warm and protected from the elements should your vehicle break down or if you're in an accident.

Spare Clothes

A spare set of jeans and a shirt are perfect for an emergency, whether that's a stain or for staying dry! Also, a jacket and a pair of gloves are a must-have.

Hand Warmers

Hand and foot warmers interact with oxygen in the air, heating up and keeping you warm for hours. These are perfect for those moments in the winter when the worst could happen.

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!


The most important supply to have on hand, bottled water can be used for drinking, for cooling, and for making food. A few small bottles or a gallon jug should be enough to keep you quenched and still have enough left over to be helpful.


A flashlight is a perfect fit for every kit out there. Make sure to pack fresh batteries or use a flashlight that has a fresh charge. Also, in today's world, a cellphone is an essential item! Charging a portable battery and putting it in the pack is a great way to guarantee a working phone throughout the entire situation.

Tool Kit

A tool kit is a centerpiece to the emergency bag. It should include several items that can be used in nearly every situation!

Jumper Cables 

In case the vehicle battery is dead, or simply needs a boost, jumper cables can save the day, provided you have someone else with a vehicle nearby.

An emergency kit should be in every car you own. No matter if it's new or old, or if it's you or your child’s car. All of these items are easy to come by and can easily fit into a duffle bag to be placed in the trunk or under the seat of your car. When an emergency strikes, you will be prepared. At Spieler’s Inc we want you to be safe and be prepared for any accidents or emergency that may arise. That is why your Jefferson City Ram dealer put this list together. Be safe out there!
