Q: I loved your newsletter on national preparedness month- thank you. What suggestions can you offer in this regard for my car?
A: So glad you liked the newsletter, I've attached it for those who are not on my email list and in the wake of Hurricane Sandy- it certainly bears repeating.
Most cars have some basic emergency supplies like jumper cables and a spare tire but what if you are stranded overnight? I suggest an emergency tote that can be stored in your trunk.
Here's what you may want to include:
-An extra pair of sneakers and socks in case you get stranded in your dress shoes
-Bottles of water
-Car charger for cell phone
-Flashlight ( leave batteries out until you use it)
-Tire repair essentials
-First Aid essentials
Use masking tape to mark a date on your emergency tote and refresh your supplies when necessary.
Being prepared for an emergency is like insurance - you hope you will never need to use it but if you do, you are so grateful to have it.
