With winter hot on our heels, you should make sure your car safety kit has everything you need.
Here is a list of some of the items you might want to consider keeping in your car.


  • Cell phone and recharger (remember, if you're going to make a call, pull over to the side of the road first.)
  • Phone list of friends, family, doctors, neighbors and towing companies
  • Ice scraper and brush
  • Collapsible shovel
  • Sand, salt or kitty litter (non clumping)
  • Tow rope or chain
  • Jumper cables or a portable charger pack
  • Warning light, roadside reflectors or road flares
  • Whistle Reflective safety vest
  • Road maps
  • Roll of paper towels
  • Flashlight and batteries, or a wind-up flashlight
  • Screw driver and duct tape
  • Fire extinguisher
  • Candle, a deep can (to put the candle in) and waterproof matches
  •  First-aid kit Blanket
  • Extra clothing, gloves, a hat and footwear
  • Emergency food pack (include non-perishable items like granola bars, nuts and bottled water)
  • Properly inflated spare tire
  • Wheel wrench and jack
  • Extra windshield washer fluid and antifreeze

No matter what the season, you have to be prepared for anything Mother Nature throws at you. Too often people only have a car safety kit in their vehicle for the winter. Keep it in your car for the whole year because you never know when you might need it.
