The Subaru line-up is known for reliability. Even with the most well-kept vehicle, there’s a possibility that you’ll need some assistance out on the road. Building a Subaru Emergency Kit with a few essential items is a great way to get started.
Building an emergency kit doesn’t require a lot of extra space. In fact, pre-assembled kits are nicely packaged into small tool bags that are easily stored in your trunk. Most of these kits include small orange cones, flashlight, tire pressure gauge and other small items.
Creating A Subaru Emergency Kit
If you are building your own kit, we’ve put together a list of items to consider including. We recommend keeping these items inside a small bag in the trunk of your car. If you live in an environment with harsh conditions, you should take that into consideration as you assemble your emergency kit.
Items You Should Have in Your Subaru in Case of Emergencies
- First Aid Kit
- Ice Scraper for those who live where it’s likely to snow.
- Window Breaker can also double as a way to cut off seat belts, as well.
- Blanket for colder temperatures.
- Spare Tire. Don’t forget jack and tire iron in order to perform the roadside repair.
- Tool Kit with essential tools, jumper cables, and a tire pressure gauge.
- Non-perishable Food like energy bars in the event you are stranded for an extended length of time.
- Roadside Emergency Displays. Reflective triangles and flares can be easily stored and will help alert traffic to your location.
- Emergency contact information for emergency services to call for assistance.
- Flashlight with extra batteries.
- Cellphone charging brick in the event you need to charge your phone and your car battery has died.
We hope you never need to use many of the supplies in your emergency kit. But it’s always better to have them and not need them, than the other way around! What other items do you include in your emergency kit?
