THE IMPORTANCE OF HAVING A ROADSIDE EMERGENCY KIT IN YOUR CAR
WHY YOU SHOULD KEEP A ROADSIDE EMERGENCY KIT IN YOUR CAR
As a vehicle owner, it never hurts to stay prepared, and if roadside assistance is not an option, we strongly recommend keeping a roadside emergency kit in your vehicle for when you’re in a jam. Drivers based in Vancouver, Burnaby, Surrey, and Richmond, BC can learn more below and contact us at Dueck on Marine for any help with their roadside emergency kits.
If ever you get a flat tire, are stranded in a remote area, have veered off-road in rough winter conditions, or anything in between, a roadside emergency kit will be of great help. A first-aid kit and emergency escape tools should be in every driver’s emergency kit, as they’ll come in handy if ever you’re in a collision, and we also recommend packing jumper cables for your battery, duct tape, road flares to alert oncoming vehicles, a charger, and a flashlight with extra batteries. These tools will enable you to take action quickly, tend to your battery, and stay visible to approaching cars until help or emergency services arrive. Lastly, we suggest keeping a tire-changing kit handy so you can swap in your spare tire when needed, and don’t forget to pack water and non-perishable snacks in case you’re in for a longer wait in a remote area.
