If you’re driving around Sterling Heights, you want to make sure you’re prepared for the unexpected. Check out this helpful emergency car kit guide from Jeffrey Kia, and take another step toward getting ready for your next road trip.

Emergency DIY Kit

When thinking about how to put your emergency car kit together, a number of important factors are worth taking into consideration, such as:

  • Who will be in the car? – If it’s just your daily commuter, you won’t need to pack items for more than one person. But if you have a large family or pets you’ll be toting around, then make sure there are emergency items for everyone – friend or fido.
  • What’s the regional terrain and weather like? – Driving through St. Clair Shores, you’re not going to need to plan to encounter any hurricanes, but you could come up against difficult terrain in the Sterling Heights area. It’s best to plan ahead, but don’t pack more than the essentials.

What should I bring?
Here are some of the most important tools to have on hand:

  • Jumper cables
  • Tire pressure gauge
  • Fix-a-Flat
  • 1-2 quarts of motor oil
  • 1 gallon of coolant
  • Flashlights w/extra batteries
  • Tire jack
  • Windshield washer fluid
  • Tools like wrench, pliers, screwdriver
  • Snacks and energy bars
  • Plenty of water
  • Winter kit if driving outside the area (ice scraper, blankets, hats, gloves, scarves)
