Winter Emergency Car Kit

Snow Tire

Winter will be here sooner than you know, and with it come a whole new set of hazardous conditions. Snow, ice, poor visibility, freezing temperatures, and even the salt used on roads can be potentially dangerous driving conditions. Whether you’re driving in Broken Arrow or visiting family outside of Owasso, it’s always good to keep a winter emergency car kit on hand.

Building a Winter Car Safety Kit

When you’re traveling through winter, it’s important to make sure you are prepared for any situation by building out the best car emergency kit possible. Our service center recommends that you keep the following items in your car, especially if you are driving in the Bixby area in addition to your winter emergency car kit.

    • Jumper cables/battery cables
    • Portable Shovel
    • Ice scraper
    • First-aid kit
    • Solar cellphone charger
    • Digital camera
    • Flat tire repair kit
    • Stranded kit: flashlight, warning signal cones, safety vest, roadside triangles, and backup batteries
    • Winter clothing items: gloves, poncho, boots, hat, blankets, rags
  • Emergency tool kit for cars: You can speak to our service center for ideas of what you should keep in your tool kit.

Winter Emergency Safety Kit For Long Distance Trips

If you do plan on driving across the country, or any long distance travel to see relatives for winter, you should keep these items in your car.

  • Fire extinguisher: A small fire can become out of control quickly, so it’s always good to have one on hand.
  • Tow strap: If your car gets stuck in a ditch or snowbank, a tow strap is a handy tool that can assist another vehicle in getting you unstuck.
  • Non-perishable food and water: Water, granola, protein bars, and other foods that you could keep on hand.

In addition, viewing important service tips can also prepare you for more conditions.
