Emergency Travelers Kit for air travel:

  • First Aid Kit

  • Blanket
  • Mini keychain LED flashlight
  • Extra socks and undies
  • Batteries for your flashlight or portable radio
  • Pack of crackers or trail mix
  • Travel power strip
  • List of contact numbers for your destination

For car travel, be sure to place these items inside the vehicle during travel and do not keep in the trunk:

  • Bottles of water
  • Dried or canned fruit (with pull tops)
  • Sleeping bag
  • Scissors
  • Flashlight
  • Car phone charger

Of course, these are just a few suggestions to pack when traveling by air or car. If at all possible, you should wait to travel until the conditions improve. The most important thing is that you get to your destination safely, even if you have to postpone your departure time. Do you have a winter survival kit? What would you put in it?
