The truth is, with the advent of Fall, we should all take inventory of the emergency items we have, or don’t have, stored in our vehicles.
If you want to be truly prepared for a weather-related emergency, take a look at our ABC list. Items listed under the “A” Category should absolutely live in your car. Items under the “B” category are a smart addition. Finally, items under the “C” category may never get used, but in that odd situation, they could save your life. Chose your preparedness accordingly.
A is for ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY
The following items are essential for inclement weather preparedness. Everything on this list should fit in the bag noted as the first item:
B is for BETTER to be over-PREPARED
These items add a level of comfort if you travel rural roads. Even in Fall, wet leaves can be treacherous.
C is for COVERING all the BASES, (and the dugout, and the stands, and even the parking lot.)
This final list conjures thoughts of survivalist training, but in fact, traveling home for Thanksgiving often involves driving through mountainous areas, so items like this could mean the difference between getting rescued or falling victim to the elements after a crash.
NOTE: Some of the items in the ultimate list may seem to be a bit overkill. There are definitely ones not on any other list we reviewed. But, being prepared for a bad-situation arising from your misfortunate can mean the difference between life and death.
