Having an emergency kit in our vehicles will help to ensure our basic needs are met.

Changing the items in your kit to reflect the seasonal changes will help you better prepare for unpredictable weather. Those that live in northern climates will find themselves dealing with winter-related issues with their vehicles more so than in southern climates, but we should all prepare for emergencies in our vehicles.

Some of these supplies may save your life.

Collapsible shovel

Windshield scraper and small broom


Battery powered radio with extra batteries

Food and Water for 3 days

Extra winter layers – hats, socks and mittens

First aid kit with pocket knife

Any necessary medications

Blanket(s) and/or bivvy bags

Tow chain or paracord
