Temperatures are starting to drop and winter weather is right around the corner. As you start to prep your home for winter, whether it’s having your chimney cleaned or setting aside essentials in case you are snowed in, it is important to remember to create a winter survival kit for your car.
For most of us our car has become almost a second home, complete with snacks for the kids, gym clothes, a phone charger and other necessities. With the amount of time spent commuting to work and running errands around town a winter automobile survival kit is crucial in case you are caught in a blizzard or stranded in freezing temperatures with a flat tire.
Here are 10 items (not in order of importance) that you should have in your car when travelling in the winter months:
1. Ice scrapper
2. Non perishable food
4. Extra warm clothing, including winter boots and blankets
5. Flashlight with extra batteries
6. Cell phone
7. First aid kit
8. Snow shovel
9. Sand or cat litter for tire traction
10. Flares or reflective emergency triangle
And remember, always take extra precautions by checking the weather and filling your gas tank before hitting the road.
