How to Pack an Emergency Kit

Emergency Medical Kit

While long drives and adventures are always fun, you still need to be prepared. If you’re planning a trip sometime soon, you’ll want to have an emergency kit with you so that you can feel prepared for just about any situation. Here are some tips on what goes into an emergency kit.

Medical Supplies

You’ll want to make your own first aid kit just in case somebody gets hurt along the way. Here are some things that should go into it:

  • Bandages & Gauze
  • Aspirin and/or Ibuprofen
  • Antiseptic & Antibiotic ointment
  • Cotton balls

Car Emergency Supplies

Don’t let your life turn into a situation where you’re stranded without help or reception. Pack these supplies to avoid that:

  • Road flares
  • Jumper cables
  • Flashlight
  • Ice scraper
  • Blankets
  • Empty gas jug

How to Pack Your Supplies

You don’t just want to throw all of your supplies in your trunk and call it a day, because they’ll roll around and possibly become useless. Instead, pack all of your supplies in a clear storage bin. By using a clear bin, you’ll be able to easily see what’s inside before opening.

For your medical supplies, pack these separately into their own first aid kit and store them in the glove box or somewhere else in the cab of the car. This will keep them from getting crushed and keep them more accessible.
