Winter Emergency Kit Supplies

In light of the recent blizzards giving motorists trouble on the roads, I felt it prudent to make a list of supplies that would be extremely beneficial for any motorist experiencing roadside problems, especially roadside problems in winter. My emergency kit includes:


  • Fleece blanket
  • Foil blanket (reflects body heat)
  • Socks
  • Fleece toque and gloves


  • Screwdriver with different tips
  • Ratchet set
  • 9 LED flashlight
  • Crescent wrench
  • Booster cables (10 foot length)
  • Shovel
  • Extension cord (15 foot)
  • Tire pump
  • Tire pressure gauge


  • Candles
  • 2 Candle holders
  • Waterproof matches
  • Lighter
  • Hand warmer
  • Garbage bag

Some other things that are useful include a chain or a tow rope and of course a vehicle jack and spare.

A good source of education and inspiration for emergencies and survival can also be found on the television show Survivorman.

People can freeze in the winter. It is best to stay alert and stay safe!
