Winter Emergency Car Kit

When winter comes, it’s here to stay! It’s important to prepare before the cold takes hold, so make sure your car, crossover, or SUV is ready for slick roads and frigid temps.

At Advantage Nissan, we’ve made a list of must-haves for every winter emergency car kit to ensure you’re prepared to hit the icy roads this winter. Our team at Advantage Nissan is here to keep you safe on Port Orchard streets!

Winter Car Safety Kit

Slick, icy roads and unpredictable weather can wreak havoc on your Tacoma and Gig Harbor drives. Advantage Nissan wants to make sure you’re prepared in the event of a breakdown or accident during winter. Below, we’ve highlighted a few winter car safety kit items that our Advantage Nissan Service Center recommends Gig Harbor-area drivers keep inside their cars this winter:

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

Essential Items for Long Road Trips This Winter

If you plan on driving clear past Puyallup and Auburn, then it’s important to consider the items you’ll need to bring along for your safety. After all, there may be some stretches of your drive where you might not have a phone signal or access to commodities. We suggest taking these following items, as well as the ones previously mentioned:

  • Tow strap: If you lose control of your vehicle and find yourself in a ditch, 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.
  • 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.
