TEMECULA – Disasters can happen in a flash, and having a plan in place for common emergency situations can make it easier to handle adverse conditions, particularly when away from home. According to MFASCO Health and Safety, a supplier of first aid supplies and kits, 90% of people do not carry first aid supplies or other emergency gear in their vehicles. Among those who may carry supplies, 30% never check to determine if they’re in good working order. The National Safety Council said that drivers should always keep emergency supply kits in the trunks or cargo areas of their vehicles. Kits should be inspected every six months, and worn-out items should be replaced. Roadside emergency kits can make the difference between getting back on the road safely or being stranded for hours.
