Mom ALWAYS asks, as her children get ready to head home, "Do you have a FULL tank of gas?" Great question, Mom!
That got me to thinking about other winter car essentials and what would make for a great kit. Here are a few suggestions and recommendations for you to build your own winter car emergency kit.
Keep in Touch: cell phone charger, short-wave radio, paper maps and compass
Warmth: blankets, hand warmers, hats, mittens, boots
Eats: granola/protein bars, nuts, bottles of water
Light Up: flashlights with extra batteries, road flares, reflective roadside triangles, reflective vest
Safety: first aid kit, masks, hand sanitizer and wipes
Dig Out: portable shovel, bags of sand/kitty litter, ice scraper, snow brush
Supplies and Tools: windshield fluid, flat tire tools, battery booster cables, Leatherman multi-tool
If you'd rather purchase a ready-made emergency car kit stop by your local hardware shop, Google winter car emergency kit and/or visit www.aaa.com and www.survival-supply.com.
Remember if you need assistance and support with your family life, home and/or office, you are cordially invited to contact ...
