Auto Emergency Kit Items

winter-driving-101Road safety is our thing! With winter weather upon us, it is important to be prepared in case of an emergency. That is right – it is time to stop procrastinating and finally put together that Auto Emergency Kit. Here are some suggested items to include:

  • Coat, gloves and boots
  • Blanket(s)
  • Waterproof tarp
  • Extra clothing (socks, sweatshirt, shoes)
  • Small shovel
  • Booster/Jumper cables
  • Non-perishable food items (granola bars, trail mix, almonds)
  • Water bottles
  • First aid kit
  • Flashlight and extra batteries
  • Waterproof matches and candles
  • Duct tape
  • Fire extinguisher
  • Snow Chains
  • Flares
  • Ice scraper

Other key tips for safe winter driving:

  1. Check your tire treads and change to winter tires in snow prone regions
  2. Slow down – the posted speed limit is a suggested speed for good road conditions, when weather is a factor always slow down
  3. Allow for more space between cars – on slick roads, stopping speeds are far longer
  4. Check the road report before you go – call 511 for real-time road conditions/traffic situations

Be safe out there!
