Winter Emergency Car Kit

winter road

Having car troubles while on the road is inconvenient at best, but waiting for Lexus roadside service can be dangerous in the winter when temperatures drop and visibility is reduced. The best way to be prepared for the worst is to have a winter emergency car kit ready in your car–follow our guide for a winter car safety kit at Lexus of Chattanooga.

Building the Best Car Emergency Kit for Winter

It’s always important to have an emergency tool kit for your car, but it’s also important to supplement the kit with seasonally appropriate items in the winter to keep you safe and warm while waiting for Lexus roadside assistance. Below is a look at the winter car safety kit the Lexus of Chattanooga Service Center recommends for Lookout Mountain-area drivers:

  • Flashlight
  • Ice scraper and shovel
  • Battery cables
  • Flat tire kit
  • Basic first-aid kit
  • External battery cell phone charger
  • Camera or charged phone to document damage
  • Items to help when stranded: flashlight, warning signaling cones, backup batteries, safety vest, and roadside triangles
  • Common winter items: gloves, blanket, rain poncho, rags, boots, a hat. Pack anything to keep you warm if you get stranded during a snowstorm. 

Winter Emergency Kit for Long Road Trips

Whether driving upstate to visit Grandma or driving back to your hometown for the break, you don’t want to be stranded on the side of the road. If it does happen though, you’ll have more peace of mind knowing you have these items in the back of your car:

  • Long-lasting food and water: It’s always best to have some water and long-lasting food, especially on long trips. Granola, protein bars, and water can last in your vehicle for about six months before they need to be replaced.
  • Tow strap: This handy tool will be helpful if your Lexus vehicle gets stuck in a ditch and you need another vehicle to help pull you out. Refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual about the proper way of using a tow strap.
  • Fire extinguisher: It’s good to have one in the event of a small fire. Make sure the fire extinguisher you purchase is intended for automotive use.
