Emergency Car Care Kit | ER Autocare

Emergencies happen. Especially on the road. And while there isn’t a single person out there who looks forward to or 100% prevent a vehicle related emergency, you can prepare for one. Keeping up with your automotive maintenance schedule can prevent breakdowns, but what happens when you are in an accident or come in contact with debris causing a blowout? At ER Auto Care, we recommend that every driver have an emergency car care kit in their trunk.

Jumper Cables

Every vehicle should have a good set of jumper cables. They need to be strong and long enough to reach between your vehicle and another car. When you find yourself stranded it is already tough to find another driver willing to pop their hood for you. It is even harder to find one with a solid set of jumper cables. Be prepared and bring your own.

Road Flares or Emergency Triangles

Road flares and emergency triangles are a great way to get the attention of passing vehicles when you are on the side of the road. This level of visibility keeps you safe by alerting them to your presence so they don’t accidentally run into your vehicle, making a stressful situation even worse.

A Solid Jack

If you have ever been on the side of the road with a flat tire, you know the importance of having a jack in your trunk. All vehicles come equipped with one. Check your trunk today to ensure that yours is present. If not, purchase another one as soon as possible.

First Aid Kit

Even if your emergency isn’t necessarily vehicle-related, a well-stocked first aid kit is crucial. Make it easier on yourself by buying an already assembled one so you don’t have to piece it together yourself.

Bottled Water

If you are on the side of the road for any amount of time, you want to stay hydrated. Especially if it happens on a hot summer day. Keeping your vehicle stocked with bottles of water is a great idea for both emergencies and long road trips.

Use these tips to build the ultimate emergency car care kit and don’t forget to schedule your next service appointment so the team at ER Auto Care in Plain City and Columbus, OH, can help you avoid potential car trouble.
