What to Include in Your Vehicle Emergency Kit

Roadside emergencies can happen anytime and anywhere. We recognize that at County Line Auto Service, and we want you to come prepared. We’ve compiled this extensive list of items below of items you may need when you experience problems on the roads. Call this your “emergency kit”. With these items, you’ll have some peace of mind knowing that you have the items to get you out of a pinch.

Flashlight

This one is basic and simple. Make sure to pack some batteries for the flashlight. These will come in handy when you need to install a spare tire, check under the hood, or any other quick fixes at night.

Cell Phone Portable Charger

Our cell phones are almost always on our bodies. However, you’re going to need it to be properly charged just in case you need directions when you’re stranded or to call for roadside assistance. That is why it is great to carry one on hand.

Jumper Cables

Having your own set of jumper cables is the best thing you can do for your car. They're not expensive and can get your battery running and engine going in minutes.

Portable Air Compressor

Portable air compressors are handy machines that are good to have on board in case your tires run low on air. If you check your tire pressure often, you won’t need this as much.

Tool Kit

This can include anything like pliers, screwdrivers, duct tape, etc. Simple tools can be immense help whether you’re fixing something in your car or elsewhere. 

First Aid Kit

Besides vehicle safety, it is “safe” to say that your safety is the number priority. Be sure to include the essentials: bandages, wipes, medications, ointments, ice packs, alcohol, etc. You’ll need these items if someone is minorly injured or simply not feeling well.
