Preparedness Also Means Being Ready While in Your Car

Posted at 11 a.m.

Car preparedness is practical in case you’re stuck in your car because of a major accident or if we ever experience a major snowstorm like a few years ago when many people were stranded in their cars for hours. Be your own hero during National Preparedness Month and be prepared for any emergency you may encounter while on the road.

In the video below, Whitney Kazragis with our emergency management office highlights some of the basic items you’ll want to have with you in your car, truck or SUV.

Always include basic supplies in your vehicle in case of emergency and customize your car kit to meet the specific needs of your family, such as if you have pets or small children, etc.
