Stay Safe in a Winter Emergency

No one wants to get stranded on the side of the road, especially in the winter. But, sometimes we can't avoid it and emergencies do happen. In the event that you find yourself sitting on the side of road during the winter months you want to be prepared with a winter emergency car kit. To make sure you put the right items in your kit we've compiled a list of must-haves.

  • An extra set of warm winter clothes.
  • Road salt, sand, or kitty litter to help gain traction if you get stuck in the snow or ice.
  • A first aid kit with things like gauze pads, antiseptic cream, adhesive bandages, and scissors.
  • A flashlight with a couple of packs of new batteries.
  • Reflective triangles or road flares alert other drivers of your presence.
  • A reliable pair of jumper cables for a quick jump start to your battery.
  • Warm blankets in case you have to sit for a while in the cold.
  • A snow and ice scraper.
