Do You Have Your Winter ‘Car Emergency Kit’ Ready?
I know we don’t want to think about the bitter cold and snowy winter, but chances are it will be here sooner than later! Being the ‘girl scout’ that I am, it really is important to keep an emergency kit in your car whenever you are driving. It is better to have everything you could possibly need, and never have to use it, than need it and not have it in the event your car breaks down and you are stuck on the side of the road. As the winter approaches, make sure you have the following essentials…..
Items To Keep In Your Vehicle ‘Emergency Kit’
Flashlight and extra batteries
Battery-operated or wind-up radio
Tow chains or tow rope
Cell phone and charger
When driving in the winter, add a few more emergency supplies in case you get stranded in the ice and snow. These items include:
Warm clothing, hats and mittens
Road salt or sand
Snacks (granola bars or energy bars)
Any special needs, such as medication, baby supplies, pet food.
Have you ever been stranded in your car, and if so what did you wish you had in the car?
