What Makes A Great Emergency Kit For My Car?
It is possible to get stranded in your car for various reasons in any season. You could be stranded due to an accident or bad weather. Being stranded in the winter can be more dangerous because of the extreme temperatures. Be sure you are prepared in case help takes a while to arrive. Here are some suggested items to keep in your emergency kit through the winter:
- Blankets and extra clothing.
- Shovel, windshield scraper, and road salt or sand.
- Flashlight and extra batteries.
- Battery powered radio and extra batteries.
- Snack foods and water.
- First aid kit (make sure it includes a pocket knife!).
- Any necessary medication.
- Emergency flares and distress flags.
Winter can bring bad driving conditions and the ice and snow make accidents more likely. Be prepared with this emergency kit in your car.
