Here at SERVPRO we pride ourselves on being proactive, which is why we want to give you tips on how to prepare a winter car emergency kit for the upcoming winter season! The NSC (National Safety Council) recommends that you include the following in your emergency kit:

  • Nonperishable, high-energy foods
  • Drinking water
  • Reflective vest in case you need to walk to get help
  • Car cell phone charger
  • Jumper cables
  • Fire extinguisher
  • Duct tape
  • Rain poncho
  • Compass
  • Flashlight with extra batteries
  • Cold weather items: snow brush, shovel, windshield washer fluid, warm clothing, cat litter for traction
  • A properly inflated spare tire, wheel wrench, and tripod jack
  • A tool kit and/or multipurpose utility tool
  • Reflective triangles and brightly colored cloth to make your vehicle more visible
  • First aid kit with gauze, tape, bandages, antibiotic ointment, aspirin, a blanket, non-latex gloves, scissors, hydrocortisone, thermometer, tweezers, and instant cold compress

When assembling your emergency kit, though we're specifically focusing on prepping for the winter season, do consider what you might need on a regular basis, and assess what you should add or remove, depending on your destination, weather conditions, or duration of trip. You should check your kit at least every six months, and restock items that you use or that have expired. If interested in learning more, the following link will take you to the NSC (National Safety Council) website.
