Winter Checklist

There is no denying that winter is here. With subzero temperatures, snow and ice it’s no time to find yourself unprepared in an emergency situation. We have compiled a list of must have items to ensure safety through the winter months, as we dream of warmer weather.

For the Car:

  • Extra hat, coat, gloves and a blanket to stay warm
  • Good pair of snow boots. If not your every day wear, be sure to have a good warm boot that you can walk in through snow and ice
  • Phone charger
  • Water and snacks
  • First aid kit
  • Flashlight
  • Windshield scraper
  • Shovel to dig out of snow, if car gets stuck
  • Sand, kitty litter, or road salt to help with tire traction if stuck
  • Tire chains
  • Spare tire or fix a flat
  • Booster cables
  • Hazard reflectors or flares

For the Home

  • Week’s worth of nonperishable foods
  • Bottled water (1 gallon/person for a 5 day period is recommended)
  • Full/extra pet food
  • Full/extra supply of any necessary medications
  • Flashlight and extra batteries
  • Battery powered radio
  • First aid kit
  • Generator
  • Extra blankets, warm clothing or alternative heating source in case of power outage

It is a good idea to take inventory and stock up at the threat of storms. Better safe then sorry šŸ™‚
