Winter is here and for many that means snow and ice can add to the hazards on the road.

Having a well-stocked emergency kit in your car can help to save your life and make you more comfortable
during breakdowns, accidents and long waits.

Your kit should include:

  • Battery jumper cables
  • First aid kit
  • Shovel
  • Basic tools (pliers, wrench, screwdriver and knife)
  • Blankets
  • Extra clothing (hats, socks, boots, mittens)
  • Flashlight
  • Bag of sand
  • Cellular phone or CB Radio

You don’t have to live in a wintery climate to encounter icy roads and hazardous roadways. In temperatures at or just above 32-degrees, a thin layer of water can turn to or cover ice, causing extremely dangerous, slippery driving conditions.
