Creating an Emergency Car Kit for Winter

By September 21, 2021 September 27th, 2021 No Comments

Last winter was intense for us here in Oklahoma. It may only be September now, but based on our weather patterns over the last year, it’s never too early to begin preparations for a safe winter season.

As personal injury attorneys who focus on auto accidents, we can’t stress how important it is to have an emergency kit for your car. You never know if you’ll be in an accident and how long you may be stranded without help.

Here are our top Amazon picks to prep your car for winter:

  1. First Aid Kit: This goes without saying, you should always have a first aid kit in your car as you never know when someone may be injured. We like this kit from Amazon because aside from basic medical supplies, it has scissors, a flashlight, a knife, and an emergency blanket. All could prove very useful in the event of an emergency.
  2. Car Tools: Should you find yourself with a flat tire, dead battery, or in an accident, having a few key tools can help make the event less stressful. This kit includes a basic toolset, tire repair kit, reflective vest, jumper cables, and more.
  3. Trunk Organizer: You want to ensure your emergency supplies are readily available should you need them. A trunk organizer is perfect for keeping everything together and in arms reach so you can easily access what you need. This organizer on Amazon is great for smaller vehicles, while this organizer may be more useful for an SUV.

Aside from these Amazon picks, we also recommend keeping a few other things in your car kit: bottled water, blankets, and small non-perishable food items like granola bars or protein bars. Harsh winter conditions may leave you stranded for hours waiting for help. With some basic supplies, you can safely wait it out until help arrives.
