Do You Have a Winter Emergency Car Kit?

Winters can be rough on a vehicle. Dead batteries, stalled engines, and getting stuck along an icy road are all common occurrences during this part of the year. That’s why it’s important to store a winter car safety kit in your vehicle. What should you put in a car emergency kit?

Among other things like a flashlight and first aid kit, you should have an emergency tool kit for your car. Our service department wants to help you keep you safe on our Camp Lejeune roads, so let’s take a closer look at why you need a winter emergency car kit and what you should put in it.

 

 

Why Everyone Needs a Winter Emergency Car Kit

Camp Lejeune roads can become iced over or can otherwise be hard to traverse during the Winter sometimes. That means it can take a long time for help to arrive if you become stranded. That’s especially true if you find yourself somewhere without a cell signal. A winter car safety kit can help you stay safe, whereas an emergency tool kit for a car can potentially get you back on the road.

What Every Winter Car Safety Kit Should Have

Your winter emergency car kit should be well-stocked with items that will help you stay safe until help arrives. Stick these items in your kit to be prepared for Richlands winters:

  • Flashlight
  • Blanket
  • Gloves
  • Phone charger
  • Portable radio
  • Food that can be stored for a long time (i.e. granola bars)
  • Water
  • Portable shovel
  • First aid kit

What an Emergency Tool Kit for Cars Should Contain

There are certain tools that are must-haves for any emergency car kit. Here is a list:

  • Flashlight
  • Jumper cables
  • Tire repair kit
  • Tire chains
  • Socket set
  • Wrenches
  • Screwdriver
  • Ice scraper
