Many drivers in the Oklahoma City and Tulsa areas plan to do a lot of traveling during the holiday season. Because of this, you may be encountering treacherous winter weather along the way. The team at Bob Moore Auto Group wants to ensure that you are well-prepared, so we have provided recommendations for a winter car safety kit. We are proud to share our automotive service tips and tricks.

What Do I Need for a Winter Car Safety Kit?

For much of the U.S, the winter months mean treacherous road conditions. If your vehicle breaks down or gets stranded, we want to help you be prepared. What do you need for a winter car safety kit? The following items are a great start: 

  • Items to help when stranded: flashlight, warning signaling cones, backup batteries, safety vest, and roadside triangles
  • Common winter items: gloves, blanket, rain poncho, rags, boots, a hat. Pack anything to keep you warm if you get stranded during a snowstorm. 
  • Battery cables
  • Ice scraper
  • Portable shovel
  • Basic first-aid kit
  • Cell phone charger
  • Camera
  • Flat tire kit

Additional Items for Long Road Trips This Winter

If you are taking a long road trip this winter, you will also want to include the items below. 

  • Tow strap: This tool can come in handy if your car gets stuck in a ditch. It allows another vehicle to help pull you out. Before using a tow strap, take a look at your owner’s manual to see how to properly use one for your particular make and model. 
  • Fire extinguisher: If a small fire occurs, a fire extinguisher intended for automotive use is beneficial.
  • Long-lasting food and water: It’s always best to have some water and long-lasting food, especially on long trips. Granola, protein bars, and water can last in your vehicle for several months.
