Car Checklist

 

Most of us spend a lot of time traveling by car.  It only makes sense to use your car as part of your defensive strategy.  Here’s a very short chEmergency_Tool_Bagecklist to ensure your car is minimally equipped to help you orient toward safety.  This is a starter checklist.  Consider items from the personal survival checklist and then add your own.  Ice scrapers and snow shovels didn’t make my checklist but they might make yours.  I have sunscreen and bug spray on mine, as well as Acetaminophen and Loratadine.  Start with this short list and add to it as you see fit.  Only include tools you know how to use.  Learn how to use all the tools in your kit.  When you add a new tool, make certain you learn how to use it.
