How to keep your vacation dream from turning into a nightmare

Have you ever thought about how practical your 72 hour emergency kit is? Could you pick it up and take it with you if you needed to evacuate? What about when you’re traveling?

While it is a good idea to keep an emergency kit in your home, it is also a good idea to keep portable emergency kits in your car or pack them with you when you’ll be away from home. These kits are much smaller than the one you have at home and will hold only the necessities, but can save your vacation dream from turing into a nightmare.

Be sure to include:

  • A three-day supply of water
  • Lightweight wool blanket and emergency reflective blanket
  • Enough food and snacks for several people that could last at least two to three days
  • Waterproof matches
  • Sharp pocket or multipurpose knife
  • Flashlight with extra batteries
  • 100-Hour Candle
  • Road flares or light sticks
  • Reflectors
  • Extra car fuses
  • Tire chains (if you live in a region that sees snow)
  • Tools and a small shovel
  • Hand and body warmers
  • First aid kit
  • Waterproof ponchosToilet paper and baby wipes
  • Money- $20 in quarters/small change and small bills like $10s, $5s and $1s
