Have you ever been stranded in a snowbound vehicle? We have and, after that experience, we made it a priority to have some basic supplies in each of our vehicles.
Despite practicing your best winter driving safety skills, a sudden winter blizzard can create a life-threatening situation. Here are several ways to be prepared.
You can purchse survival kits that contain all you need to keep you safe while waiting for help to arrive.
You could also compile a stash of supplies from things you likely already have at home. The basics can be as simple as what might fit inside a large coffee can.
Equip your vehicle with some basic winter survival gear. Here's what you'll need:
When your survival kit in a can is complete, place a stocking cap over the entire kit and stash it in the passenger compartment of your car. If you have a 3 pound coffee can, you will have room for additional items like band-aids, aspirin, a small radio, etc. If there is still room, add more of items you already have included or other items you feel might be necessary.
To be well prepared for a longer winter emergency, or to provide for several people, it is wise to store a number of other items in your car.
