Amica encourages drivers to have an emergency kit ready


LINCOLN, RI - Commuting to work, driving the kids to afterschool activities and taking the family on vacation can put a lot of stress on a vehicle. That’s why Amica Insurance recommends having an emergency kit ready in the event your car breaks down.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the kit should contain:

• Jumper cables
• A flashlight and batteries
• Warning devices like flares or markers
• A small shovel and abrasive material – like kitty litter – if your vehicle is stuck in the snow

It’s also a good idea to have a charged cell phone and survival kit available, in case you need to call for assistance or are stranded in inclement weather.
