Compiled by Dick Oakes

If your are evacuating an area or you are stranded in your vehicle, you should make sure your vehicle is prepared to help you survive. The following items should be included in your vehicle, and be sure to rotate the items periodically.

Keep first aid kit and food and water close to the driver's seat if you are travelling alone. You may become trapped in your vehicle and be unable to access your vehicle's storage area. Most important, remain calm.
