Keep an Emergency Kit in your Car

It’s important to keep an emergency kit in your vehicle whenever you are driving. As the winter approaches, make sure you have the following essentials

Flashlight and extra batteries

  • Battery-operated or wind-up radio
  • Jumper cables
  • Emergency flares
  • Tow chains or tow rope
  • Cell phone and charger
  • First-aid kit

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
  • Sand Bricks
  • Ice scraper
  • Snow shovel
  • Road salt or sand
  • Snacks / granola type bars
  • Bottled water
  • Any special needs, such as medication, baby supplies, pet food
  • Blankets

Did you know a few filled Sand Bricks can be easily stored in your trunk, for ready-to-use tire chalks?  Great for sand, slush and mud; toss one under your tire for better traction.  Sand Bricks can conveniently tie at the top and be ready when you need them!
