Be Prepared...Even in your Car

Before taking a trip during winter, tell someone where you are going, your intended route and expected arrival time.

Keep your gas tank full to prevent gas line freeze-up. Keep an emergency kit in the car too, and have ready the following items:

  • jumper cables
  • road side flares
  • window ice scraper
  • fresh water and high-energy foods
  • blanket or sleeping bag
  • extra pair of gloves and heat pads made for hunting
  • candles and matches in a weather-tight coffee can
  • cell phone, CB, or emergency calling device
  • flash light with fresh batteries
  • pencil and notepad for messages
  • mall shovel, bag of sand, cat liter, traction mats
