Prepared: The Car Mobility Bag

So you’ve got the first aid kit in your car because it makes sense to be prepared for accidents or injuries… and now you’re ready to take it one step further with the Car Mobility Bag. This bag is also known as the Get Home Bag. Since it’s stored in your vehicle, it’s things that you’d like to carry around with you in case your car breaks down. What do you need to take care of yourself and your loved ones if you’re not near your house?

The bag I’m using in my vehicle is from Fieldcraft Survival and while the price is in USD and I had to pay duties, I didn’t find anything comparable in Canada so it was worth it for me.

I love that the bag comes with a panel that you can zip up so when you’re parked at stores someone walking by won’t see what it contains. You can unzip it and roll the cover up at the bottom when driving so that you can easily grab the first aid kit pouch if you need it. I keep the bag on the back of the passenger side so that I can easily reach and grab the first aid kit pouch while seated on the driver’s side.

So what’s inside each bag?

Small Pouch – First Aid Kit

I’ve already covered what’s included in the first aid kit in another post. You can read about the contents and shop links on Amazon HERE.

Small Pouch – Mobility Bag

Here is what I include in the small bag at the top right of the velcro panel. I’ve gathered items in here that I might need on a regular basis or if the car were to break down on the side of the road. For example, our family’s cottage is a 5-hour drive from Ottawa. There are stretches of the road that are quite remote with no cell service. What happens if the car broke down and we needed to take care of ourselves?
