How to Put Together a Winter Emergency Kit for Your Vehicle

Tips Regarding the Winter Emergency Kit

Before we delve into the subject of what to include in your winter emergency kit, there are some tips that you should know to use and maintain it effectively. To learn what they are, continue reading the pointers listed below.
  • Figure Out Its Components: For the items in your emergency kit to keep you safe, you need to employ them correctly. To that end, you need to figure them out first: learn what they do, how they do it, and how you can use them.
  • Keep It in the Right Container: Something you may not have thought about is that you need to keep your emergency kit in the right container. This one should be sturdy and able to endure harsh conditions (for example, fire and  water).
  • Find a Strategic Spot for It: Imagine you're in an emergency situation. You have seconds to react correctly. Under that much pressure, the last thing you want to do is to have to look for the emergency kit. Find a strategic spot where you can reach for it easily. But remember to put it back there after each time you use it.
  • Be Sure It's in Top Shape: Damaged, torn, or items in bad shape won't help you deal with an emergency in the best way possible. For that reason, you need to inspect your winter emergency kit every so often. Upon your inspection, verify that everything is in good shape and ready to be used.
  • Restock It as Needed: Finally, you should realize that the items in your kit are finite, meaning that they will finish up the more you use them. For that reason, it is imperative that you restock the items in your kit as you consume them, so you won't have to go without them.

What to Keep in the Winter Emergency Kit

Now let's go to the second part of this post: actually knowing what to include in your vehicle's winter emergency kit so that you can remain safe in an eventuality. Below you'll find a list with ideas of the necessary items.
  • Miscellaneous Tools: Let's begin with some tools that can be incredibly helpful if you have an emergency in your vehicle. For example, you should remember to keep hand sanitizer, a snow shovel, scissors, matches, a flashlight, safety pins, tweezers, tape, matches, a whistle, and of course, a fire extinguisher.
  • Water and Food: It has happened that people have had to survive on their own for days (for example, when someone is snowed-in). To remain safe if a dire situation like that presents itself to you, you should keep enough water and non-perishable food in your vehicle.
  • Items to Keep You Warm: In some cases, the cold weather can be too harsh to bear. To ensure you won't have to suffer through it, have a few different items that can keep you warm in your vehicle. Have a thick blanket, a hat, gloves, earmuffs, scarves, extra clothing, and a balaclava for when the weather is too extreme.
  • Communication Devices and Contact Information: Sometimes, you won't be able to deal with an emergency situation on your own. For those cases, it's extremely important that you have communication devices in your vehicle, and the contact of who you will communicate with.
  • Equipment for the Vehicle: No matter what time of the year it is and no matter the weather, you should always have tools for your vehicle's maintenance ready (e.g. a spare tire, a tire jack, a charger cables, among other similar tools).
  • A First-Aid Kit: Last but definitely not least, it's crucial that you have a first-aid kit in your vehicle (again, whether it's sunny, cold, raining, or other). To know what to fill your kit with, read through the list below:
    1. The Basics: cotton, gauze, closure strips, alcohol, closure strips, band-aids, medical tape, and similar items.
    2. Medicine: aspirins, antiseptics, antihistamines, paracetamol, etc.
    3. Medical equipment: disposable gloves, syringes, sterile wooden sticks, thermometers, among others.
