Be prepared


Winter driving can be dangerous.

Roads can be slippery. It can be hard to see the road when it is snowing.

Sometimes cars get stuck. You might have to wait for help. A winter emergency kit can help you stay safe and warm.

Your winter emergency kit doesn’t have to be big. You can keep it in the back seat or trunk of your car.


Here are some things to put in your kit:

✔ shovel

✔ ice scraper and snow brush

✔ blankets and warm clothing

✔ salt or sand

✔ flashlight, flare or candles

✔ canned food and bottled water

✔ jumper cables

✔ tow rope
