A big part in being a smart prepare is making sure you are always prepared for any situation. The most common thing that everyone does is driving to and from places every single day. Your vehicle is your mobile command center and you need to be prepared for all types of situations.

It is important to remember to never add something to your collection without knowing the proper use of it. YouTube is a great tool to search equipment and see how it is used. You can also go on YouTube or do a Google search to see what other people are adding to their vehicles to better prepare them for life situations. This list is not a hard and fast list of the things you have to have in your vehicle. This is just a basic start for anyone. Just remember, if you have a job in the city working 9 to 5, your list of survival gear is going to look different than the person work in the woods logging. Your gear list is personal to you, don't just add something because you saw it on YouTube and it looks cool, add it because you can see a situation where it would be used.
