ESSENTIAL ITEMS FOR YOUR WINTER ROADSIDE EMERGENCY KIT

Blankets and Warm Clothing: Pack extra blankets or sleeping bags to keep warm if you're stranded in cold weather. Also, include hats, gloves, scarves, and thermal socks.
Ice Scraper and Snow Brush: Clearing snow and ice from your vehicle is crucial for visibility and safety. Include a sturdy ice scraper and snow brush in your kit.
Portable Shovel: A small collapsible shovel can help you dig out the snow around your tires or clear a path if needed.
Kitty Litter or Sand: Sprinkle litter or sand around your tires for added traction on icy roads.
Jumper Cables: Cold weather can drain your car battery faster than usual. Always carry jumper cables to jump-start your vehicle or help someone in need.
Flashlight and Extra Batteries: Include a reliable flashlight with extra batteries to help you see and signal for help in dark conditions.
First Aid Kit: Keep a well-stocked first aid kit in your emergency kit, including necessary medical supplies like bandages, disinfectants, pain relievers, and any personal medications.
Non-Perishable Food and Water: Pack high-energy snacks such as granola bars, nuts, or dried fruits, along with bottled water. Please make sure that the food is non-perishable and regularly check expiration dates.
Road Flares or Reflective Triangles: These items are essential for alerting other drivers and emergency responders to your presence in case of an accident or breakdown.
Portable Phone Charger: A portable charger can be a lifesaver in case of a dead phone battery. Please look for one that is compatible with your phone and keep it charged.
