We think of our loyal customers as family, and we always want to keep our family safe. Glove compartments can be a great tool for keeping vital information and tools available in the case of an emergency. It is a spot that first responders have been trained to check when the unexpected happens. We have decided to put together a list of important tools and information that we would like to see our loved ones have in the glove compartment in case of emergency.
First, it is very important to have the vehicle registration and insurance information in the glove compartment. In case of an accident, this information is crucial. Having it readily available can help take some of the stress out of the difficult situation. However, we suggest not storing the title to your vehicle in this location. If the vehicle was ever stolen, access to the title could create a larger problem.
Next, we feel that having a pen and small pad of paper in the glove compartment is a great idea. Having a spot to write down information quickly is always a great idea. Whether you need to document someone’s information during an accident, or jot down an important phone number, it is always a good plan to have paper and a pen quickly accessible.
It is also a great idea to have a list of emergency contacts inside the glove compartment. Whether it is a spouse, your children, a parent or friend, it is always smart to have loved one’s information in an envelope inside the glove compartment. In the case of an emergency, it will give valuable information in a timely manner.
We believe that it is also smart to have an envelope which contains medical information. In an emergency, it would be really helpful for first responders to know if the driver or any passengers who may be present have any medical concerns such as, current medications, allergies or medical conditions.
Other smart things to keep in the glove compartment include, the vehicle owner’s manual, a flashlight for night time emergencies, and small high protein snacks in case you are stranded for a bit.
We hope this may serve as a helpful guide, to help keep all of your travels safe.
