Disaster Supply Kit For Your Automobile

Disaster Supply Items

Those who travel even during the worst of times are advised to carry a winter storm supply kit in their vehicle. Assemble a separate disaster supplies kit for the trunk of each car used by members of your family that includes:

  • Blankets or sleeping bag
  • Extra sets of dry clothing
  • A windshield scraper
  • A shovel
  • A container of sand
  • Tire chains
  • Battery booster (jumper) cables
  • A tow chain or rope
  • First aid kit
  • Flashlight or emergency light with extra batteries
  • Transistor radio with extra batteries
  • A brightly colored cloth
  • Candles
  • A high calorie, nonperishable food

Another item that might make the difference is a cell phone. If you are stranded in your car during a blizzard, make a call and wait for help to arrive. Do not try to walk to safety.
