Preparing A Winter Emergency Kit: What You Need

At Truro Mitsubishi, we pride ourselves on being the preferred Mitsubishi dealership in Truro, Nova Scotia. We care about and serve our clients in Colchester, Hants, Pictou and Cumberland. With winter weather being unpredictable, we wanted to provide you with some information on how we can help you with vehicle maintenance and prepare a winter weather safety kit.

When winter weather is approaching, we must help our clients stay safe on the roads. From vehicle check-ups to changing your oil for you, Truro Mitsubishi is here to help. We also want to tell you more about the importance of having a winter safety kit in your vehicle. It is always a good idea to have various items in your vehicle to keep you safe should you get caught in severe winter weather on the road.

Before we go any further into what you should be in emergency roadside safety kits, let's discuss the importance of stopping by and letting our parts and service department check your vehicle and change your oil. Taking your car to our service department is an excellent time to check all fluids and add antifreeze. During this time, we would also be happy to assist in making sure you have a properly stocked winter safety kit in your vehicle. Below, we have listed out all the items that you should have on hand to help you through a winter emergency.

Winter Weather Car Safety Kit Items

  • Jumper cables or portable battery with jumper cables
  • First Aid Kit
  • Blankets or space blanket
  • Roadside flares/triangle reflectors
  • Tool kit (screwdrivers, pliers, a ratchet set and wrench)
  • Flashlight with extra batteries
  • Energy/Granola bars
  • Bottled water
  • Nitrile gloves/gloves

Having the above items along with a recent vehicle check and oil change, you will be prepared to travel during winter weather safely. Another tip for winter travel is planning out your route. With a planned route, you can better handle emergencies if they happen. Knowing how many gas stations or towns are available and their distances can help you walk or call for assistance.
