In Your Trunk

February 25, 2010 / 

Yes, it can be frightening at times to clean out your trunk and see what is actually in there. However, it can be more frightening,  in cases of emergency and inclement weather, to be without the necessary items.

Did You Know?

Your trunk is a great place to leave necessary and potentially life-saving emergency items. Make a note in September of each year to go through it and add what is missing.

Therefore, we recommend you keep the following  in the trunk of your vehicle:

  • First Aid supplies
  • Jumper cables
  • Ice scraper with brush
  • Tire chains
  • Blankets
  • Salt or sand – or, kitty litter
  • Flashlight and batteries
  • Emergency flares
  • Snow or retractable shovel
  • Water
  • Extra phone charger
  • Large jar candle and matches
  • Quart of oil
  • Strip of bright colored fabric
