In an effort to help our customers stay safe in their vehicles this season, we wanted to pass along some information on how to correctly pack a winter survival kit.

One of the crucial items that belong in your kit is a set of jumper cables. These cables will allow you to get assistance with a dead battery from the first motorist that stops to help.

Be sure to have a flashlight and plenty of new batteries. This can be a lifesaver when trying to make minor repairs in the dark, to light up the cabin, or to flag down passing motorists.

A first aid kit can be helpful to mend minor injuries until the help arrives.

Be sure to pack things to keep you and passengers warm in the event the vehicle cannot start and help is a long way away. Blankets, hats, gloves, and coats, all will make a huge difference as temperatures drop.
