First AidThis 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.
BlanketNo 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 ClothesA 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 WarmersHand 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 ItemsNut 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!
WaterThe 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.
FlashlightA 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 KitA tool kit is a centerpiece to the emergency bag. It should include several items that can be used in nearly every situation!
Jumper CablesIn 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!
