Any car, new or old can break down, or if we get careless run out of gas. Often, staying in the car and calling for help on your cell phone is a good idea.
King Solomon Wrote, “If you falter in a time of trouble, how small is your strength! Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter. If you say, “But we knew nothing about this,” does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who guards your life know it? Will he not repay everyone according to what they have done? (Proverbs 24:10-12 NIV)

We use Smart Phones for more things. The power is incredible. You can now download a free App from the Red Cross for emergency first aid.
Many common injuries are covered, some with how to videos. Content can be preloaded, so you can easily reference anyplace, any time.
