Don't Wait! Tips for Packing a Winter Survival Kit

Driving in bad winter conditions isn't always easy for drivers. We at Hendrick MINI want to make sure you prepare for the weather with a winter survival kit. If you are driving through bad weather during a long trip, emergency preparedness is essential for yourself, your passengers, and your vehicle.

Things that you should include to stay warm and safe are a portable cell phone charger, blankets, food, water, and extra clothing. If you need to get out of your vehicle, make sure you are in a safe place and have gloves and hats to help you stay warm.

Your car or truck should have a good spare tire, tire chains, a shovel, a good jack, and a tow chain or rope. Jumper cables and extra fluids are also necessary if you are having issues with keeping your car running. Keep most items close instead of the trunk, so they are easy to reach.
