Emergency Car Kit | McAllen, TX

COVID-19 has been an emergency like no other. We’ve all had to change our lifestyles to help keep each other safe. At Bert Ogden McAllen Nissan in McAllen, Texas, that has meant our online ordering system (Express Checkout) with at-home delivery, contactless vehicle maintenance, and strict CDC guidelines on property, including masks and regular sanitization.

We should all also be prepared for emergencies on the go by packing an emergency kit that you can easily fit in the trunk of your car. Not sure what to pack? Here are our top recommendations:

  • Nonperishable foods, like beef jerky or trail mix
  • Bottled water
  • A charged power bank with extra phone chargers
  • A flashlight with batteries
  • A battery-operated radio
  • A collapsible shovel
  • An ice scraper
  • A small toolkit
  • Flares
  • Jumper cables
  • A spare tire
