Disaster Preparedness Car Kit Edition

Disaster Preparedness Car Kit Edition

If a disaster strikes while you are away from home, how will you cope? If roads are blocked and you cannot drive, what might you need to see you back to your home? What supplies should you carry in your car? 

FEMA suggests that you create a kit that you keep in your car. It does not have to take up a great deal of room, but having it might just make the difference in your safety. 

Suggested items include: Dust masks, gloves, water, flashlights with extra batteries, rain gear, hat, sunglasses, blanket, tool kit, sunscreen, some nonperishable snacks, charger for phone/tablet, first aid kit, and jumper cables.
