ALWAYS CARRY AN EMERGENCY ROAD KIT.
As the seasons change, and Arizona motorists drive in differing climate and road conditions, it’s difficult to predict what emergencies are likely to occur. By always carrying an emergency road kit in your vehicle, you will be better prepared to deal with the unexpected situations that are likely to come up in your travels, including those of a serious, life threatening nature. The following items should be included in your Emergency Kit. Auto parts stores may also sell ready-made kits for your convenience.
DUCT TAPE Useful for temporary repair of leaking hoses.
EXTRA FLASHLIGHT BATTERIES Just in case those in your flashlight are dead, or you burn them out due to emergengy use like signaling for help.
FIRST AID KIT Helpful to treat cuts, scrapes and burns you may experience.
WARM CLOTHES AND BLANKETS In the event you become stranded, and an overnight stay is possible, these items could be a lifesaver in colder situations! Yes it does get cold in the high country in the summer.
FLASHLIGHT It goes without saying, a very important part of your kit. Can be used for signaling for help, making repairs, all other activities in the dark.
JUMPER CABLES Can get your car started in the likelihood your battery goes dead.
SAFETY VEST Will improve your visibility if search and rescue personnel are looking for you.
NON-PERISHABLE FOOD AND WATER Can be a lifesaver in case you are involved in a longer than expected situation. These kinds of non-perishable foods are available in most camping and outdoor supplies stores.
It is also a good idea to always carry a cellphone and auto cellphone charger with you at all times. In addition, always let someone know where you are going, in case you run into trouble. Lastly, flares could be used to signal for help if needed.
