Emergency Kits – How to Pack and Prepare for Anything



Emergency Kits – How to Pack and Prepare for Anything

CallSafe understands how important it is to be prepared for anything and everything. You probably have a basic first-aid kit in your home, but do you have an emergency kit for your car? Here’s what the Red Cross says you should have prepared in your glove box:

Supplies for Your Vehicle:

  • Flashlight with extra batteries and extra bulbs (or hand-charging LED flashlights that you can get at the Dollar Store!)
  • Maps
  • First aid kit and manual
  • Gloves
  • Tire repair kit
  • Jumper cables
  • Flares
  • Bottled water
  • Non-perishable foods such as granola bars, fruit snacks or beef jerky

Add-ins for Winter:

Blanket, hat, mittens, shovel, sand, tire chains, windshield scraper, florescent distress flag

Add-ins for Summer:

Sunscreen lotion SPF 15 or higher, shade item (umbrella, wide-brimmed hat, etc.)

A little bit of forethought can go a long way. We hope this little checklist helps. Don’t forget to have your mobile emergency response button with you at all times too. For more safety tips or information on help buttons, go to www.callsafe.net.
