Your Trunk's Essentials: An Emergency Kit

Posted by the knowledge brokers

It's smart to keep an emergency kit in your trunk, especially during winter months. Here are some items we'd suggest putting in your emergency kit:

  • a blanket
  • extra boots and gloves
  • an extra set of warm clothes
  • extra water and food, including hard candies (sucking on a hard candy will prevent your mouth from getting too dry)
  • an ice scraper
  • a small shovel
  • a flashlight
  • windshield washer fluid
  • windshield wipers
  • flares
  • jumper cables
  • a tool kit
  • tire chains
  • a tire gauge
  • a spare tire with air in it
  • tire-changing equipment
  • a first-aid kit
  • paper towels
  • a bag of abrasive material such as sand, salt or non-clumping kitty litter, which can provide additional traction if a tire gets stuck in snow
  • also, keep the gas tank as full as you can to prevent the gas lines from freezing
