Having an emergency kit in our vehicles will help to ensure our basic needs are met.
Changing the items in your kit to reflect the seasonal changes will help you better prepare for unpredictable weather. Those that live in northern climates will find themselves dealing with winter-related issues with their vehicles more so than in southern climates, but we should all prepare for emergencies in our vehicles.
Some of these supplies may save your life.
Battery powered radio with extra batteries
