Winter Car Safety Kit – The Essentials

If you’re planning on tackling long distances or doing plenty of driving this winter, we’ve got some additional winter car safety kit items we’d recommend you keep in your vehicle. Having these items will ensure that the emergency tool kit for your car is complete with usable items that can help you in a dire situation. Here are some essentials we recommend you keep in your vehicle:

  • Food & Water: While it may seem trivial, having shelf-stable food and some water can ensure you’re prepared if you end up having to spend some time in your vehicle before help can arrive.
  • Tow Stap: A tow strap will allow you to safely be pulled out of a ditch during inclement weather.
  • Fire Extinguisher: In the event of an accident, there may be a small fire that you can put out if you’ve got a fire extinguisher in your vehicle.
