How to Prepare Your Own Roadside Emergency Kit

These are just a few of the essentials you'll need to have in your own roadside emergency box.

  • Road flares are important for alerting distracted drivers you are stuck on the side of the road.
  • Jumper cables can give any other driver the chance to easily jump your batter with their car and get you rolling along.
  • Fix-a-flat cans should be in the kit because they can help get your tire off of the rim long enough for you to make it to a nearby service station.
  • A first aid kit could be used to assist anyone with minor injuries until you can get help.
  • There should be at least two flashlights and plenty of batteries in your kit. This is key when you are stuck at night and need to flag down help.

Before your next trip, stop by our service center here at Lithia Hyundai of Anchorage and we can inspect the car to make certain its ready for the journey.
