Winter Car Safety Kit

Winter emergencies can happen at any time on Louisville roads, from breaking down and waiting for help to getting stuck in an overnight traffic jam from a bad accident. The team at Fisher Honda wants you to have the necessary items in your car to keep you safe wherever you roam around Broomfield. Below are the essential items to make up the best emergency car kit for wintertime: 

  • Cell phone charger
  • Flat tire kit or spare tire
  • Ice scraper
  • Basic first-aid kit
  • Portable shovel
  • Items to help when stranded: safety vest, flashlight, lighter, warning signaling cones, backup batteries, and roadside triangles
  • Jumper cables
  • Snacks
  • Camera (in case your accident)
  • Common winter items: stocking hat, gloves, scarf, blankets, rain poncho, rags, boots, and extra socks, and anything else to keep you warm if you get stranded during a snowstorm. 

Essential Items for Long Road Trips This Winter

If you drive past Longmont on an extended road trip this winter, you should pack these extra items in your emergency tool kit for your car: 

  • Tow strap: If your new Honda slides off the road and you get stuck in a ditch, a tow trap allows another vehicle to help pull you out. Review your vehicle’s owner’s manual for recommendations about using a tow strap properly.
  • Fire extinguisher: Ensure your fire extinguisher is intended for automotive use.
  • Long-lasting food and water: It’s a good idea to have some water and non-perishable food in the car, such as granola, protein bars, and nuts. Also, have some bottled water on hand. 

If you find yourself stranded in inclement weather away from other drivers, staying inside or close to your vehicle, if possible, is crucial. Never leave your car and set out on your own!! Emergency responders can spot your vehicle quickly, but you’ll be harder to find if you wander off and get lost. With a winter emergency car kit, you’ll be prepared.
