A survival kit in this context is talking about what you should keep in your car. You need different things in the winter than you do in the summer. These things are what you need in case your car breaks down. This talks about the items you should keep on hand in the summer.
- Having a few items in your vehicle can help you survive, including in the best of weather situations. The first thing perhaps is having a roadside assistance membership.
- Just like the winter kit, you need a place to put these items. A medium sized plastic bin with a lid or a good size duffle bag is a good place to start.
- Besides the usual items you should have in a survival kit, for the summer add sunscreen, an umbrella, a rain jacket, a hat with a brim, extra sunglasses, and bug spray.
“When we think of a vehicle survival kit it’s often about being stuck in snow or having your vehicle broken down in bad weather, but there’s more to it than that.”
