Emergency Preparedness: Make A Car Kit

A couple of years ago Costco sold some 72 hour kits. I bought 2, along with a first aid kit, that we always keep in the trunk. The first aid kit has come in handy more than once. We weren't on the road per se: the first time we were at the beach and the second time was at one of Chance's softball games.

Here is a picture of the contents of the survival kit.

I also assembled a kit for emergency car repairs.  We have jumper cables, a ratchet set, fuses, a couple of tools, a tire repair kit, and a flash light. (Not pictured: a delightful fleece blanket.)

Here is the little, out of the way, pocket where the kits normally reside.


    1. Hi lovely lady.
      I have a Emergency kit in my truck also.
      Thanks so much for your lovely comments on my 2011 Tablescape for Valentine's day. I hope you and your family have a wonderful weekend. I'am going to put a new Tablescape on this Sunday for Valentine's hope you come see me.

    2. I do need to do this, so thanks for the helpful hints & ideas! We live east of Phoenix, AZ, so not many natural disasters happen here, except for the occasional monsoon & flash floods. I still think it's a good idea to have an emergency kit in your car. Our biggest concern here, would be having water, especially in the summer. Thanks for all your suggestions.
