Having a car is like having a second home. Just as there are essential items that you need to furnish your home, there are essential items that you can also furnish your car with. These items can come in quite handy in an emergency and when you least expect it. 20 Essential Items to Have In Your Car:
1. Old Cell Phone with a Fully Charged Battery
Keep an old cell phone with a fully charged battery off and in the glove box in case of emergencies. That call to 911 from an old cell phone could be the call that saves your life.
2. Extra Batteries
Most of the items that are essential to have in your car at all times are battery operated as well. Make sure that you have extra batteries located somewhere in the car just in case.
3. Fire Extinguisher
A Fire extinguisher is extremely important to have in the car but make sure that it is a small portable one (5lbs.). It can potentially save your life and others.
4. Owner’s Manual
Most of us don’t look or even glance at the owner’s manual but it is important to keep it in the glove box. You never know when you might need to learn more about what your car is really capable of doing in an emergency.
