 Safety Essentials for a Summer Trip with the Trunk

When you hit the road for a road trip this summer, it's important to make sure you're prepared for summer temperatures and also for any potential emergencies. Here is a quick list of essentials that should be in the luggage compartment before departure.


Safety Essentials for a Summer Trip with the Trunk

Yes, it's summer, but it's still dark at night. Flashlights are a staple in your trunk whether or not you're on a road trip. These days, the best flashlights use LEDs, which are much smaller and brighter, perfect for keeping your trunk safe in any emergency on the road. Also, consider getting a solar or manual flashlight. Solar power is great in the summer because there are more hours of light during the day to recharge the light. Crank power is great if you're stuck at night and don't have batteries for your lights.


Your first essential is food and water. Buy jugs of water instead of small water bottles. The carafe will be easy to store in the car's trunk and easy to use if you need to pour water on the fire or use water for your car. You can also drink from the carafe if needed or fill small water bottles with it. Instead of snack foods that could be squashed on the food side, get protein bars when they are on sale. The protein bars will be individually wrapped and even crushed, they will remain edible. Protein bars will also be able to withstand heat unless you choose chocolate-coated bars.

Emergency and repair supplies

Because if you get stuck on the road and break down, you'll have basic emergency and repair supplies right at your fingertips. Make sure you have things like a plug, connection cables, spare tire, shovel, flashlights, first aid kit, fire extinguisher, blanket, tarp, flares, duct tape, and a knife.

Basics of electronics

Having a cell phone can save your life in many situations, but it will be no good if it drains and your car's battery dies. Make sure you keep a power bank handy. There are even solar-powered power banks. Also, make sure you have a regular battery-powered radio. A solar-powered or battery-powered fan will also come in handy if the air conditioning has stopped at some point.
