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.

Emergency Kit
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
  • Small shovel, bag of sand, cat liter, traction mats
