Equip Your Car for Your Survival

It’s in the news every day – civil unrest, riots and both lawful and unlawful protests over police and government actions. Not to mention, intense weather conditions that strand cars or cause entire neighborhoods to be locked down. What will you do if you find yourself in the midst of such an unexpected situation? You must Equip Your Car for Your Survival!

It’s a good chance that you will be somewhere around police protests – as I was a few months ago on the 10 Freeway in Los Angeles one Sunday afternoon when a large group of people ran on to the freeway and stopped traffic for an hour. Similarly, a good friend who lives in Monrovia went to work one morning and when approaching home that evening, found his house “red-tagged” due to mud flow from the hill behind his house. Point being from these two drastically different scenarios can have the same result for any of us – that whenever you take a drive in your car, you have no idea what you might encounter, so you’d better be equipped. How silly would we feel if we had a fully stocked and disaster proof home, and the disaster hits us in our car when we don’t have a thing?

Well, this something you can easily take care of – even in an hour. You can purchase a bug out bag that has many of these essential items – or you can put one together one item at a time.

Here is a great portable charger for your iPhone from Amazon – one item you will most definitely need, to access local news as well as contact your family with your fully powered phone.

You will also want water, some food, a warm jacket, a flashlight, flare gun, tire changing kit (lug nut wrench and jack). Here’s a list to consider – and I’ll bet you don’t have them yet!
