Even though the last few months have been rather mild compared to the past several Maryland winters, it is still important to be prepared. If you get caught in a bad snowstorm, are you ready? The following tools will help you survive almost any winter weather accident, no matter how bad the storm.
Blankets: If your car gets stuck in the snow and you are unable to get it out, staying warm is your number one priority. This is where the blankets come into play. Bundle up and wait for help!
Flares: Help rescuers see you! It is easy to get lost amongst the constantly falling snow. Flares will help you stand out.
First Aid Kit: If someone in your vehicle gets injured in an accident, your first aid kit will come in handy.
Jumper Cables: These are important to keep in your car at all times, not just during the winter.
A Bag of Sand (or Kitty Litter): Stuck in the snow and can’t seem to get any traction? Well, you are in luck…if you have a bag of sand in your trunk. Spread the sand in front of your tires to help you gain traction.
Ice Scraper: This will constant come in handy throughout the winter.
Flashlight (and extra batteries): A flashlight is great for several reasons. It will not only help you see what’s going on, but it will also help others see you.
Small Tool Kit: Make sure you have everything you need to change a tire and perform minor mechanical jobs.
Small Shovel: When you are in a bind, a shovel will help you dig out.
Remember, it is better to be safe than sorry. So make sure you have the above items in your car, truck, or SUV at all times this winter!
