Amica Encourages Drivers to Have an Emergency Kit Ready

Share Article

Driving to work and other activities can take a toll on your vehicle, so it's important to be prepared.

Jumper cables are an essential part of a roadside emergency kit.

Commuting to work, driving the kids to afterschool activities and taking the family on vacation can put a lot of stress on a vehicle. That’s why Amica Insurance recommends having an emergency kit ready in the event your car breaks down.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the kit should contain:

  •     Jumper cables
  •     A flashlight and batteries
  •     Warning devices like flares or markers
  •     A small shovel and abrasive material – like kitty litter – if your vehicle is stuck in the snow

It’s also a good idea to have a charged cell phone and survival kit available, in case you need to call for assistance or are stranded in inclement weather.
