Winter Car Safety Kit

Because winter is fast approaching, it’s important to have a winter car safety kit to remain prepared on the Aurora roads. The experienced team at Fisher Acura want to provide drivers with all they need to know if they find themselves stranded on the wintery roads. Let’s take a look at some of these important tips from the service center at Fisher Acura below:

Here are a few things to add to your emergency tool kit for your car:

  • Battery cables
  • Portable shovel
  • Ice scraper
  • Helpful items when stranded: flashlight, warning signaling cones, backup batteries, safety vest, and roadside triangles
  • Cell phone charger
  • Camera
  • Flat tire kit
  • Basic first-aid kit
  • Warm winter clothing: boots, socks, gloves, blanket, rain poncho, rags, a hat. You should make sure that you have everything you need in case you get stranded in a winter storm.

Important Items for Long Road Trips During Winter

When preparing your emergency tool kit for your car, you should pack the following items if you plan on going on long road trips:

  • Tow strap: This will help you if you get stuck in a snowbank or any other area, and you need another vehicle to help pull you out. Consult your owner’s manual to ensure you’re attaching the tow strap to the correct spot on your Acura vehicle.
  • Fire extinguisher: Just in case you have a small fire, it’s a good idea to carry a fire extinguisher designed for use with vehicles.
  • Non-perishable food and water: In case you get stuck somewhere, it’s important to always have food and water handy. On average, foods such as granola or protein bars can last up to six months.

If you ever get caught in winter weather around Boulder, it is recommended to stay inside or close to your vehicle. You should never abandon your vehicle and try to find help on your own. When you call emergency services, they can easily locate your vehicle, but if you’re not nearby, they likely will not be able to find you. Even if you have the best car emergency kit, you should always call emergency services just to be safe.
