Top 5 Things to Keep in Your Car

Are you wondering which items you should keep in your car in case of an emergency? There are several items that come in handy, save time and even save lives if they are kept in your vehicle during a Utah summer or winter. Although it may seem tedious, collecting a few life-saving items and throwing them in the trunk of your Ford Focus will give you some reprieve in an emergency. If you are having some trouble, I have compiled a list below of the most important things to keep in your vehicle.

Tire Gauge

Keeping your tires properly inflated for the Utah highway is critical to car safety and the wear on your tires. Taking a minute to throw a tire gauge in your trunk could save you hours if you ever got stranded. Digital tire gauges are the best and they are not too expensive. If you take a minute when your tires are cold to check your tires before you drive, you could prevent trouble.

Cell Phone Charger

Cell Phone Charger

Newer cars, like the Ford Focus have phone docking and charging capabilities as standard features. If you don’t own a Ford Focus or a newer car, you may want to invest in a solar-powered charger. In any case, having a charger in your car could mean the difference between you being stranded in the middle of nowhere, Utah and the ability to call for help.

Flashlight

Keeping a decent sized flashlight in your car could really be life-saving in an emergency, especially during a winter in Utah. If your car breaks down at night and you need to look in the engine or an accident happens and an injured person needs help getting out, a flashlight is extremely necessary; better to be safe than sorry.

GPS and Map

If your car doesn’t have a build in navigation system, like the Ford Focus, you may want to keep a portable GPS with you. Maps are also extremely helpful, especially when all the electronic devices stop working.

First-Aid Kit

First-Aid Kit

A small kit with the essential first-aid items can make a big difference when someone gets hurt. Bandages, burn cream antibacterial ointment, a poncho, and pain reliever should cover nearly every small emergency you might come across in your Ford Focus. A small fire extinguisher designed for automotive use could also be helpful when it comes to minor electrical and engine fires.
