Do you have the essentials in your car you might need in an emergency?
here are some ideas to help you evaluate:
drinking water (and purification tablets?)
hand crank powered flashlight (with radio?)
first aid kit (and burn ointment?)
emergency phone numbers
paper and pencil
energy bars (or snack foods with a shelf life)
baby: diapers, wipes, formula
what other items do you think are a must for the car?
