When you drive around during the winter, you need to be ready for anything. Among other things, this means having a good survival kit that should at least include the following items:

  • LED Flashlights: Try to have a least a couple of these on hand at all times. Stock some extra batteries as well.
  • Jumper Cables: You should always keep a pair of jumper cables in your car, even during the spring and summer. Take some time to learn how to jump a car battery if you don't already know how.
  • A Blanket and a Change of Clothes: While you don't need a whole outfit, you should at least have an extra coat, hat, a pair of gloves, and some dry socks in your survival kit. Pack a heavy blanket as well.
  • Non-Perishable Foods: Snacks such as nuts, granola bars, and dried fruit will come in handy if you're stuck someplace for a long period of time.
  • A Cell Phone Charger: Being able to charge your phone in an emergency is a must when you need to call for help.
  • Road Flares: A few road flares can make it easier for first responders to find you at night or during a severe storm.
