Vehicle Emergency Kit
  • A Marine loads his vehicle emergency kit into his car.In the event that you are stranded while driving, keep this kit in your vehicle at all times.
  • This kit should contain at a minimum: food, water, flashlights and extra batteries, first aid kit and necessary medications, signal flares, repair tools, portable AM/FM radio, seasonal items (coat, rain gear, engine fluids, shovel, ice scraper, warm clothes, gloves), comfortable/sturdy shoes, and blankets or sleeping bags.
  • Also consider: cell phone and phone charger, reflective triangle, and baby formula and diapers if you have a small child.
  • Make sure you include your family’s communications plan.


Set your own course through any hazard: stay informed, make a plan, build a kit.
