Auto Emergency Kit

If you own an auto, it is a good idea to keep an emergency kit in the trunk. This should be adapted to the climate in which you live. If you have different seasons where you live, make sure that the kit is correct for the current season. Below is a list of recommended contents. Select the ones that apply to your needs, your space available and your budget.

Cash and Coins - It is a good idea to store some cash in your Auto Emergency Kit. You never know what you may need to spend cash for in an emergency.

In today's world of mobile phones, you might not think that you would ever need to use a pay phone. However, if there is not a working mobile phone available or the cell towers are not working, you may need to use a pay phone, if you can find one.

Besides that, there may be some other reasons to have cash on hand, such as to pay the toll at a toll booth. Keep coins and paper money in a well marked envelope in your kit.

Case - Every kit needs a good case to be stored in. Be sure to get one that will fit in the alloted space in your vehicle.
