Never Travel Without An Emergency Kit


A snowstorm trapped thousands of trucks and cars on a Russian highway over the weekend, leaving motorists without food and water and running out of gasoline and demonstrating yet again the need to be properly prepared for emergencies.

Police in the region claimed field kitchens were operating on the road, but drivers complained that supplies never reached them and they feared freezing in subzero temperatures if their gas ran out. The traffic jam was as much as 120 miles long at different times on Sunday, with cars moving less than one mile in a 24-hour period.

Every car should have a travel kit containing water and food for 72 hours for several people. It should also include weather-specific items, flashlights, batteries, basic tools and a first-aid kit. For more information on what should go into an emergency kit, go here.

Prepping is prudent and can be a lifesaver. To neglect to prepare is foolhardy.
