Q. What should I have in my car in case of a winter emergency?

A. Since we practically live in our cars these days, it's a good idea to be prepared for any type of winter emergency. Items to have in your kit to survive an accident, being stuck in a snowdrift or even just a mechanical failure until help arrives include the following.

FOR EMERGENCY COMMUNICATION

  • Cell phone, portable charger, extra batteries
  • Battery-powered radio (with extra batteries)
  • Emergency flares
  • Bright-colored flag, help signs

TO RESCUE YOURSELF
  • Shovel
  • Windshield scraper
  • Flashlight (with extra batteries)
  • Chains or rope
  • Tire chains
  • Canned compressed air with sealant (emergency tire repair)
  • Road salt and sand
  • Booster cables
  • Tool kit
  • Road maps

FOR WINTER SURVIVAL
  • Water
  • Snack food
  • Extra hats, coats, mittens
  • Blankets
  • First-aid kit
  • Waterproof matches and a can (to melt snow for water)

newsletter-graphicAlthough this seems like a big list, all these items could come in handy and maybe even be life-saving. As a minimum, though, make sure you have things to keep you warm (blankets or sleeping bags), water, food and a charged cell phone. You never know when help will get to you during a big storm, so be ready to take care of yourself and your family when the time comes.
