March 23rd, 2018

You know that unexpected things can happen at home and at work. How prepared is your fleet.

 

Today’s post is by Troy Lowe; Vice President of Development at SafeSourcing.

If you have been driving for a while, you know that unexpected things can happen.  Most of us spend hours in our cars and don’t think twice about emergencies that can occur while on the road.  These emergencies may not even involve you and your automobile.  With all of the traffic and congestion on the roadways, it is possible that you could end up stuck for hours because of bad weather or accidents.  It is important to be prepared and ready for these unexpected problems.  One way to prepare yourself is to have an emergency car kit in all of your vehicles.  These kits can be purchased or you can make your own kit stocked with all of the necessary items.  These emergencies don’t always happen in convenient places where cell phone service is available nor may a tow truck be nearby. Therefore, you need to be prepared for any conditions that may occur.  Below are some suggested items that you should include in your emergency car kit:

  • Jumper Cables
  • Tool Kit
  • First Aid Kit
  • Fire Extinguisher
  • Reflective Warning Triangles
  • Tow Strap
  • Foam Tire Sealant
  • Gloves
  • Flashlight
  • Duct Tape
  • Cell Phone Charger
  • Warm Blanket
  • Windshield Ice Scraper
  • Drinking Water
  • Non Perishable Snacks
  • Matches or a Lighter
