April 10th, 2011 by
  1. A selection of tools and items in the McCluskey Winter Emergency kit

    Flashlight and extra batteries.  Preferably, Mag lights, they are high quality and will last a lifetime.

  2. Camera.  In case you are ever involved in an accident, you can take pictures of the scene and anyone who is involved or is a witness. The camera will be a valuable asset if you need to document location, angle of impact, or the severity of the collision. Take as many pictures as you can of your car and the others involved. Get as many witnesses as you possibly can, and get a police report, even if it is a minor fender bender.
  3. Fire extinguisher
  4. Pencil and paper to take names of witnesses.
  5. Bottled Water
  6. McCluskey’s Roadside Assistance Number: You can usually tell the police to contact your towing service on their radio. The tow truck driver could be a good asset to have on your team at this point. They see car accidents all the time, and they might be able to assist you with the police or just give you some comfort in the situation.
  7. Insurance Agent’s Number
  8. Dry Food Such as Nutrition Bars: Nutrition bars are great to have handy, and nuts and trail mixes second best
  9. First Aid Kit & Medicine
    If you need any medicine on a daily basis, keep an emergency supply with you. First aid kit is a must have for every car, any time.
