What Goes in a Roadside Emergency Kit?



A post shared by Ford Motor Company (@ford) on


Getting stuck on the side of the road can be painful, but getting stuck with no way to do anything about it can be torturous.

That's why you should always have a roadside emergency kit in your vehicle.

You can buy one pre-assembled or you can find some key items and build one yourself. These are a few of our suggestions:

  • Foam tire sealant: Good for limping to safety and help if you run over a nail.
  • Flameless flare alternatives: Battery-powered emergency beacons and reflective triangles help to warn oncoming traffic without the risk of setting something on fire.
  • Fire extinguisher: For Class B and Class C fires.
  • Jumper cables: Sixteen-foot cables and eight-gauge rubber coating ought to suffice.
  • Headlamp: Nighttime breakdowns will be easier if you don't have to fuss with a flashlight.

Keep these items and a fully-charged cell phone in your car at all times and take a lot of the pain out of vehicle breakdowns.

If you need us to give your vehicle a safety checkup before you head out on a road trip, our service center in Oxnard, CA can take care of it. Schedule an appointment today!
