Winter Emergency Car Kit

Winter Road

Winter weather is just something people have to deal with in Walla Walla, but just because you live in cold weather doesn’t mean you have to be completely unprepared. We’ve got a guide right here that’ll walk you through your winter emergency car kit, how to make the best car emergency kit, and other ways to keep your car serviced properly for winter. Let Walla Walla Valley Honda help you prepare a winter car safety kit.

Winter Car Safety Kit

In Tri-Cities, you don’t want to be stranded thanks to slick roads or bad winter weather. We’re here to give you the scoop on what items to have in your winter emergency car kit if you get stranded somewhere. You can schedule service with us to help you with any questions you may have about the emergency tool kit for your car.

Items you’re going to want to have in your winter car safety kit include:

  • Battery cables
  • Basic first-aid kit
  • Cell phone charger
  • Ice scraper
  • Portable shovel
  • Camera
  • Flat tire kit
  • 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, socks, a hat. Pack anything to keep you warm if you get stranded during a snowstorm. 

Essential Items for Long-Haul Winter Driving

Are you headed from Dayton to somewhere far away? Here’s what you’re going to need to keep your car safe during those long winter drives.

  • A tow strap will help you out big time if you’re stuck in a ditch and need to get pulled out. You’re going to want to look at your car’s owner’s manual to use a tow strap the right way.
  • A fire extinguisher is handy for small fires, meaning you won’t have a car severely damaged by flames. Make sure your fire extinguisher is made for use on cars.
  • Durable food and drinking water are essential for long trips. Use granola, protein bars, and water to sustain yourself during trying times on the road but be sure to replenish your supplies every six months.

We urge you to never leave your vehicle if you’re stranded because it’s much harder for emergency responders to find you in the wilderness than it is for them to find your car on the side of the road.
