I find that keeping a blanket in your car for emergencies is a wonderful idea. I used to keep a sleeping bag when I lived in areas that would have snow in the winter for warmth.
Now that I live in Florida, I still carry a blanket. Not because it is too cold here, but if you are stranded, you can spread the blanket to sit down on the ground instead of sitting in your hot vehicle. If you run across someone injured and in possible shock, you have a blanket. If it is raining and you have to walk in the rain, it will offer a little bit of help. Also if you get wet or dirty, you can sit on the blanket to protect the inside of your car.
I got lucky and found three pretty little throws at my Goodwill that say "Freedom is not free." I keep them drapped over the back seat of my SUV.
