For many of us, winter means snow, sleet, and icy road conditions. It’s a perfect time to stay home and snuggle by the fire. If you must travel out in bad weather, however, be sure you and your car are prepared for a winter emergency. Get your vehicle tuned up, keep the gas tank full, and be sure you have the following in your car.

  • Cell phone and charger
  • Reflective triangles or flares
  • Spare tire, wheel wrench, and a jack
  • Jumper cables
  • Tool kit
  • Shovel
  • Ice scraper and brush
  • Bag of salt, sand, or cat litter for traction
  • Flashlight and extra batteries
  • First aid kit – be sure to include medications and baby items (formula, diapers, etc.) if needed.
  • Exterior windshield cleaner
  • Extra clothes – hats, gloves, coats, boots
  • Blankets or sleeping bag to keep warm inside the vehicle
  • Non-perishable, high-energy foods like energy bars, candy bars, dried fruits, and nuts.
  • Water

Remember, if you are stranded, put on your flashers, call for help, and stay in your car until help arrives. If I missed something in the above list, please leave a comment and let me know.

Stay safe out there!
