Emergency Kits

Despite all the precautions you take to prevent a breakdown, drivers need to be ready for the times something unexpected goes wrong with your car. AAA recommends you pack and carry an emergency driving kit on every trip.

Here is a list of all the items that should be in every emergency kit:

  • Charged mobile phone, pre-programmed with rescue apps, emergency services and family phone numbers
  • First-aid kit
  • Warning devices (flares or triangles)
  • Jumper cables
  • Flashlight with fresh batteries
  • Tire gauge
  • Rags or paper towels
  • Basic toolkit (screwdrivers, pliers, adjustable wrench)
  • Window washer fluid
  • Water and non-perishable food items for human and pet passengers
  • Hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, face masks

Winter Driving requires a few additional items:

  • Ice scraper, snow brush and snow shovel
  • Bag of abrasive material (sand, kitty litter) or traction mats
  • Small shovel
  • Blankets
  • Extra set of warm clothes (gloves, hats, scarves)
  • A winter-formulated window washer fluid
