Prepare an emergency kit for winter driving

A winter storm survival kit is extremely helpful should you become stranded. Consider keeping it in the back seat of your vehicle (in case your trunk jams or is frozen shut). Items to consider:

  • Blankets or sleeping bags
  • Extra stocking caps, warm socks, gloves/mittens
  • Flashlight with extra batteries

  • First-aid kit

  • Booster cables and windshield brush/scraper

  • Drinking water and high-calorie, non-perishable food (trail mix, energy/protein bars)

  • Sand or cat litter for traction

  • Cell phone adapter/charger
