The "Ultimate EMERGENCY CAR Kit" carry IF STUCK IN YOUR CAR for Blizzard Conditions?

Recommended Posts

I have recently been tinkering with a real world, thought-game like "The Ultimate Altoid Survival Kit".


PLEASE give me your feedback about "The Ultimate Emergency Car Kit" that fits in a #10 Can with the Plastic Lid.


My Kit started with 4 large, plastic, double Zip Lock bags. 3 were folded and put into the bottom of the can. The 4th bag contained a 'over-sized' roll of toilet paper and is sealed to prevent moisture contamination. This becomes your family's toilet in a 'trapped in your car' situation, like stuck-on-a-roadway during a Blizzard, our while fleeing a Hurricane, Chemical Spill or Wildfire. In the core of the toilet paper, we usually keep three tampons: for their original purpose, or 1st Aid major bleeding wound plug or fire starting material.


In the event of a disaster, you can remove everything from the can and put the items in one of the spare plastic bags. Unzip the bag with the Toilet Paper and set the whole bag down into the can. Fold the top of the bag backward around the top of the outside of the can. Remove the toilet paper and you have a workable emergency car toilet for men or women.


The bag can be sealed and the lid snapped back on. When the first bag is 'full', you have several spares.


In packing my Emergency Car Kit Can, this 'toilet' section only takes part of the space.


I added:


Hand Soap

Hand Sanitizer

LED flashlight

Folding Knife

2 'Dry' Granola Bars

Spare Asthma Inhaler for my wife

4 Emergency blankets (four people or front and back for 2 people)

Foot Warmers


What would you add? Not much room left.


How would you fill the #10 Can differently? Be creative with 'Survival' as the foundation.


I could add a pack of playing cards to pass the time, for example, while a hand-cranked radio is too large.


What else? What would you replace?


I appreciate your time to make this 'great' and practical. These will make good gifts - personal, 'hand-made' & practical.
