Winter’s going to be upon us before you know it. You might not be ready to let go of the beauty of fall, but is your car? It’s so important to get prepared for winter weather with the best car emergency kit you can find. The good news is, it’s easy to make a winter emergency car kit with the help of the service department at Leman's Chevrolet City Llc. Take a look at our suggestions for your emergency tool kit for your car before the ice and snow hit Normal roads. 

Winter Car Safety Kit

Winter brings all sorts of potential hazards to Decatur drivers. If you go off the road because of ice, get stuck in the snow, or find yourself with a dead battery, you’re going to want the best car emergency kit at the ready. So don’t waste time—gather this gear in Springfield before the weather gets cold, so you’ll be ready for the first surprise storm of the season!

  • Battery jumper cables—Make sure you know how to jump start a car in the rain.
  • Ice scraper
  • Portable shovel
  • Flashlight
  • Warning signaling cones
  • Backup batteries
  • Safety vest
  • Roadside triangles
  • Basic first-aid kit
  • Cell phone charger
  • Camera
  • Flat tire kit

It’s always a good idea to keep extra winter gear in your car, too. Extra gloves, boots, socks, and hats will be much-appreciated if you find yourself cold and wet. Rain ponchos, blankets, and rags come in handy, too, especially if you’re stranded with a dead battery and no heat. 

Emergency Tool Kit for Your Car on a Road Trip

Even with winter weather, plenty of people hit the road for long road trips for the holidays. Travel with confidence when you include an emergency tool kit for your car: 

  • Tow strap: Helpful if your car gets stuck in a ditch, and you need another vehicle to help pull you out. Refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual about the proper way of using a tow strap before you hit the road.
  • Fire extinguisher: Make sure the fire extinguisher you purchase is intended for automotive use.
  • Long-lasting food and water: Granola, protein bars, and bottled water can last in your vehicle for about six months before they need to be replaced. 

Hopefully, your winter emergency car kit will help keep you safe in the event you find yourself stranded. However, your safety is in your hands. Stay safe by remaining in your vehicle, or as close as possible. Never leave your vehicle and set out on foot! Emergency responders will be able to find your vehicle, but they might not be able to find you. Until help arrives, hunker down in your car and stay warm with your winter car safety kit.
