Auto emergency kit:

Find out what items to put in your car’s emergency kit.

Auto emergency kit: how to assemble an emergency preparedness kit on your own.

A basic tool kit (or emergency preparedness kit) might help you fix a problem that would otherwise leave your car stranded.

For instance, what if the problem is as simple as a loose battery cable? Having a screwdriver or a wrench will get you out of that situation in no time.

The older your car is, the more likely a tool kit will come in handy. If your worn radiator hose is starting to leak or an exhaust pipe is coming loose, duct tape is a great temporary fix. Also put jumper cables in your tool kit. Even if your car doesn’t break down, they’re good to have to help somebody else.

Advance Auto Parts carries a complete line of tools, emergency supplies and pre-packed emergency kits. Plus, of course, a full selection of quality auto parts.

Why should you have an auto emergency kit?

Car reliability has come a long way from the days when blowouts and boil overs were common occurrences, but run flat tires and modern cooling systems can’t prevent every type of roadside emergency.

A recent survey by the AAA revealed that 28 percent of those responding had experienced at least one automotive breakdown during the prior 12 months. Getting stranded on a lonely road, without the appropriate equipment, is every motorist’s worst nightmare.

All of this points to why an emergency preparedness kit is a must for most drivers.

Choose the right tools and items for your emergency kits.

The items you put in your auto emergency kit depend on your climate and geography. For hot, desert areas, bottled water is a must. In cold weather, a blanket is essential.

Phoenix police to auction lost, stolen items

by William Hermann – Jun. 24, 2011 12:00 AM

The Arizona Republic

It’s like Moby Yard Sale or Godzilla Swap Meet, stuff almost unlimited, all under the watchful eyes of Phoenix police in a 50,000-square-foot warehouse where more than 1.3 million items are stacked on shelves that reach 25 feet high.

And you can buy some of it this weekend.

A gigantic warehouse in south Phoenix run by the police Property Management Bureau houses the incredible inventory of articles that wind up in the hands of police each year: recovered stolen goods, found items, impounded articles, inmates’ property, lost items, evidence and more.

Lt. Mark Cousins and property supervisor Joseph Kolbeck are in charge of storing, protecting, returning and sometimes sending to auction items from this mountain of goods, which includes jewelry, golf clubs, television sets, fur coats, stamp and coin collections, statues, paintings, cellphones, rugs, chandeliers, shoes, silverware sets, wristwatches, clocks and more.

“We bring in about 220,000 items a year,” Kolbeck said, walking through the cavernous warehouse, watching a forklift operator bring down a bin from on high. “And it’s our responsibility to know exactly where everything is and make sure it’s secure.”

Cousins said employees use a “real time barcode” scanner to account for each item when it comes in, and place it on a shelf where it can be readily retrieved.

“When an officer makes an arrest and impounds evidence, for instance, he or she has to know it can be found quickly to use at trial,” Cousins said. “The bar code makes it relatively easy.”

Some of the items in the warehouse will be destroyed, including all drugs and all firearms not returned to their owners.

Many items are returned to the owners.

“We are exhaustive in our efforts to return things,” Cousins said. “We’ll call on the phone, send letters, we publish in the Business Gazette lists of things we have. we really want to help people get their belongings back.”

Some items must remain in the property room for a considerable amount of time, because they are evidence.

“The oldest item here has been in storage since 1947 and it relates to a homicide,” Cousins said. “And I can’t say what it is.”

But many items are not claimed, and after 90 days can be sold. Every year, about 190,000 items are returned to their owners, destroyed because they are contraband or sent from the warehouse to the auctioneer’s block. Phoenix several years ago got out of the business of “police auctions” and now contracts with Auction Systems Auctioneers & Appraisers to sell property. Proceeds go into the city’s general fund.

Deb Weidenhamer, chief executive of Auction Systems, said her company auctions goods for many law-enforcement agencies, for banks and businesses, and also for several state agencies, including the Arizona Department of Transportation, for which it sells heavy equipment.

“We partner with various businesses and agencies and take a commission on everything we sell,” Weidenhamer said. “The more we sell, the more each of us makes, so we work very hard to sell everyone’s goods.”

Weidenhamer said that of the many police departments her company works with, “Phoenix police are among the best.”

“They run one of the best property rooms in the nation,” she said. “Their room is incredibly clean and well-organized. They know where everything is. It’s an impressive operation.”

Some of the Phoenix property room hoard will be a part of the Phoenix Marathon Auction that will be held at 9 a.m. Saturday at the Auction Systems warehouse in south Phoenix at 951 W. Watkins St.

A visit to the company’s website, auctionandappraise.com. will reveal the rules of the auction, when items can be viewed, how they can be bid for in person and online, methods of payment and pick-up of items.

Weidenhamer said that now and then someone at an auction will recognize something they once owned.

“Sometimes someone says, ‘That was stolen from me!’ and there is a process they can go through if that’s true,” she said. “But most things have had insurance paid on the loss, and when that happens, it no longer belongs to them.”

Weidenhamer says there should be some very good pickings.

“Think about it this way: some of it is stolen property, and if it was worth someone stealing it, it’s probably pretty cool,” she said.

Ch. 1: On the Road Again

Having a membership to an auto club or driving a later model vehicle under warranty — complete with free roadside assistance — often lulls us into a false sense of security about our prospects regarding a roadside breakdown.

The ugly truth is that vehicle breakdowns do happen and they don’t always strike in a busy, well-lighted, cloudless, warm spot with flawless cell phone reception and a tow truck close at hand. A roadside emergency kit can ease the pain and reduce the hassle of such breakdowns.

Speaking for AAA of the Carolinas, Tom Crosby says each year, one in three motorists encounters a roadside breakdown or some other incident that prevents normal vehicle operation, such as a dead battery, mechanical problems or a flat tire.

Just because your car appears in good shape, there’s no guarantee problems won’t arise. “You never know when something’s going to happen to your car,” Crosby says, “no matter how well you maintain it.”

Although some of these incidents occur in people’s driveways, many take place away from home. The more remote the area and the more inclement the weather, the more likely the contents of a car emergency kit will come in handy — even if you have a roadside assistance plan and can contact help. “A car emergency kit is designed to help you survive until help arrives,” Crosby says.

There are a number of prepackaged car emergency kits on the market ranging in price from $18 to $70. Typing “roadside emergency kit” into a search engine will reveal a wide array of retail kits.

The most comprehensive prepackaged car emergency kit we found is the All-In-One Emergency Car Kit marketed by Survival-supply.com for $69.95.

You can save some money by assembling your own car emergency kit. Even if you purchase a prepackaged kit, you will probably want to beef it up with some additional items.

Here are the must-have items Crosby says should be part of every car emergency kit:

1. Charged cell phone. Although this item will probably be on your person, it may make the difference between getting help fast and maybe not getting help at all. “Make sure it is properly charged every time you get into your car,” Crosby says.

2. First-aid kit. As well as an assortment of Band-Aids, it should include adhesive tape, gauze pads, aspirin, antiseptic wipes, antiseptic cream or ointment, and anything particular to you or your family.

3. Fire Extinguisher. It should be rated for Class B and Class C fires by the National Fire Protection Association, or NFPA. The NFPA says Class B fires are those that involve flammable or combustible liquids, such as gasoline, diesel fuel and kerosene. Class C fires involve energized electrical equipment such as switches, panel boxes and batteries.

4. Three reflective warning triangles. While many prepackaged emergency kits contain one warning triangle, Crosby suggests you have three that are placed 50 feet apart to warn oncoming traffic.
