Winter Emergency Car Kit

Car tires on winter road covered with snow

Winter weather in Cincinnati can be severe with heavy amounts of snowfall, ice and slush, and so a well thought out winter car safety kit can be a huge help during a breakdown or if you run off the highway.

Winter Car Kit Essentials

Our service team has selected several items that they feel are essential to have in an emergency tool kit to ensure that drivers in the Mason and Fort Mitchell, KY areas are well-prepared to handle adversity in severe weather conditions. Here’s what you should have in your winter emergency car kit:

  • Shovel
  • Flat tire repair kit
  • Battery jumper cables
  • First-aid kit
  • Cell phone charger
  • External battery pack
  • Ice scrapers
  • Camera
  • Basic tool kit
  • Plus a flashlight, bottled water, warning signaling cones, backup batteries, safety vest, and roadside triangles for when you are stranded.

Preparing For Short Trips to the Store

Try to avoid throwing on just a pair of sandals and a shirt when running an errand to the store in bad weather. Accidents can happen at any time and no matter how far from home you might be, you should be properly prepared for severe weather in the Lexington, KY area and the surrounding communities. Be sure to have gloves, a blanket, rainwear, rags, waterproof boots, and a wool hat packed in the vehicle’s trunk or cargo area. Anything to keep warm if you get stranded during a snowstorm.

Essentials for Long Winter Drives

When you head out on a long road trip in winter, there are several extra items you should add to your winter car safety kit:

  • Tow strap: A good, solid tow strap can be a lifesaver if you happen to run off the road into a snowdrift.
  • Fire extinguisher: Just because the weather has turned cold, doesn’t mean that fires can’t start in the engine compartment. Be prepared with a good automotive fire extinguisher.
  • Non-perishable food and bottled water: When headed across state lines, you may enter vast unpopulated areas. If you become stranded here, you will need supplies to keep nourished while you wait for help to arrive.
