Winter Vehicle Emergency Safety Kit

Blog | Nov 11, 2016

There are essential items you should have packed in your car at all times, along with other items you should put in the vehicle before the start of winter. People spend a lot of time in their vehicles and being prepared for the unexpected is far better than being caught stranded on the side of the road without an emergency safety kit.

Common items to have that are recommended by the car wash experts at Cobblestone Auto Spa include:

  • Roadside Flares or Reflectors
  • First Aid Kit
  • Tool Kit
  • Spare Tire
  • Car Jack
  • Fire Extinguisher
  • Collapsible/Camping Shovel
  • Blanket
  • Ice Melt
  • Flashlight
  • External Smartphone Recharger
  • Dry Snacks
  • Bottled Water
  • Gloves and Hat
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Paper Towels
  • Toilet Paper
  • Cat Litter
  • Extra Flashlight Batteries

You will also want to use zip-locking plastic bags in various sizes to store your items. The plastic bag helps keep paper items, snacks, and other such items dry. In addition, some people keep an entire change of clothes, along with a heavy jacket and boots in their trunk that they can change into if they get wet. For longer road trips, some people pack canned goods and a can opener to have access to other food besides just dry snacks.
