  • Important winter clothes: gloves, blanket, rain poncho, rags, boots, socks, a hat. Pack anything to keep you warm if you get stranded during a snowstorm. 

Important Items to Pack for Road Trips

Part of car winter prep is packing a few important items just in case of an emergency. These include the following items:

  • Tow strap: A tow strap will help you if you need another vehicle to help you out of a ditch or icy patch. Before using this tool, it’s important to refer to your owner’s manual so you know exactly how to attach the strap to your vehicle. 
  • Fire extinguisher: It’s important to have a fire extinguisher in case you have a small fire. You should make sure that the fire extinguisher added to your winter car kit is designed for use in vehicles.
  • Food and water: In case you are stuck for a while, it’s important to pack enough non-perishable food in case you’re stranded. These include protein bars, granola bars, and plenty of water. These supplies should be enough to last six months.

One of the most important things to remember is not to leave your vehicle to look for help. It’s easier for emergency responders to find you if you stay by your vehicle. You should use your emergency winter car kit until help arrives.
