Plan Ahead for Emergencies

November 19, 2008

Will you be ready for anything on the road this winter? It’s a good idea to
stock your trunk with a winter driving emergency kit, just in case your car
stalls. You can buy a car emergency kit at most stores that sell automotive
products, but if you want to make one yourself, or enhance one you’ve already
bought, here’s what you’ll need:


  • Water bottles
  • Non-perishable high-energy food, such as canned nuts, granola bars,
    chocolate, dried fruit and hard candy
  • Blanket
  • Extra gloves, cap and boots
  • Extra set of warm clothes
  • Ice scraper
  • Small shovel
  • Flashlight with extra batteries
  • Windshield washer fluid
  • Windshield wipers
  • Flares
  • Jumper cables
  • Inflated spare tire
  • Tire-changing equipment
  • First aid kit
  • Matches in waterproof container
  • Compass
  • Salt or sand, to create traction when stuck in snow
