Ways to Beat the Heat While Working Your GIG

Featured Image

When working a gig, sometimes it’s not feasible to keep your car’s A/C running. One way I beat the heat is with a summer survival kit. Because some areas of the country are hotter than others, my kit includes bottles of water, a blanket, a first aid kit, and a personal fan.

Having a summer survival kit and being prepared is important to me—while I may not need to use it every day, it’s there in case of an emergency. One may ask why I keep a blanket in my summer survival kit. I carry an emergency blanket because my mother would always carry an emergency blanket and I have chosen to carry on that tradition. Your survival kit should be completely personalized to fit your needs. However, if you need guidance, I have included links to both my personal fan and emergency blanket.
