Be Prepared

No one wants or expects to be in an accident, but it happens to people everyday. Before it happens to you there are a few steps you can take to help make the situation easier if it arises.

roadside emergency kit

  • Make sure your insurance information is up to date and is easily accessible.
  • Have a list of emergency contact numbers clearly designated in your cell phone.
  • A basic first aid kit.
  • A disposable camera to take photos of the scene and any damage (though with cell phone cameras this may be redundant, but a little redundancy never hurt).
  • Ensure that your spare tire is in good condition and filled to the suggested pressure, and that all required tools to change a tire are there.
  • A tire repair kit and pump.
  • Emergency road flares, reflective triangles, or cones
  • A thermal blanket
  • A pair of work gloves
  • A flashlight with extra batteries
  • Bottled water and non-perishable food
  • Booster cables
  • Fire Extinguisher
  • Hand wipes
