Are You Prepared to Spend the Night in Your Vehicle?

A few days ago a storm came through our area which caused the major freeway between LA and Vegas to be closed down overnight.  Needless to say, a lot of people found themselves spending the night in their vehicles until the freeway reopened the next day.  I am also guessing that many of these people were unprepared for such an experience.  

Everyone should have basic supplies and equipment in their car in case of emergency.  This includes:

  • Bottled water
  • Simple, easy to eat, no cooking required food
  • A charged battery bank to power your cell phone
  • Blankets or sleeping bags
  • A way to stay warm (usb handwarmers and an additional battery bank, for example)
  • Flashlights and spare batteries
  • A way to go to the bathroom (a coffee can with cat litter, TP, and hand sanitizer, for example)
  • Entertainment (a book and reading light, cards, etc)
  • Other emergency supplies
