Emergency items to keep in your vehicleIt is impossible to know when or where your car might break down. Oftentimes, drivers find themselves without cell service and miles away from help. Here at Hoist Towing & Recovery, we have suggestions for some emergency items that Prescott drivers should consider keeping in their vehicle.

Jumper cables or jump starter

Jumper cables require assistance from good Samaritans. But if you use a jump starter, remember to keep it charged.

First Aid Kit

This is only for small injuries, but it could minimize damage until help arrives.

Spare tire

You should check the tire pressure on your spare on a regular basis. Otherwise, you may be stranded with two flats. If your car does not have a spare, you should have a full can of Slime.

Jack and lug wrench

A spare tire will not do much good unless you can lift up the car and remove lug nuts.


Because you cannot predict what might go wrong, it is good to have a tool for any situation.


If your car breaks down when it is cold out, this could be a lifesaver. It also doubles as a seat cover if you are stuck changing a tire in the rain.

Duct tape

Duct tape is like a multi-tool. It can fix just about anything – at least temporarily.
