Winter Emergency Car Kit

Winter car kit

At Performance Mercedes-Benz, we want to help Pelham drivers feel confident on the road while winter takes over. One way to help drivers is with an emergency tool kit for your car. We have compiled a list for you to create the best car emergency kit that can help you when old man winter strikes and the roads get slick. Book your service appointment with us to ensure your vehicle is road safe today!

Winter Car Safety Kit

When you switch your vehicle tires to your winter tires, we recommend that you stock up on your winter car safety kit. You never know when the next snowstorm will hit, and as a Niagara-on-the-Lake driver, you know how icy the roads can get out there. Here is what our service department recommends for the best winter car emergency kit:

  • Battery cables
  • Ice scraper
  • Portable shovel
  • Bag of Salt
  • Windshield wiper fluid meant for winter months
  • Basic first-aid kit
  • Cell phone charger
  • Camera
  • Flat tire kit
  • Spare tire
  • Items to help when stranded: flashlight, warning signaling cones, backup batteries, safety vest, and roadside triangles.
  • Everyday 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 Road Trips This Winter

If you decide to hit the roads during the winter months, there are additional items you should add to your winter emergency car kit to help keep you safe:

  • Tow strap: If you get stuck in a ditch, and you need another vehicle to help pull you out, a tow strap will come in handy. Refer to your owner’s manual to ensure you use the tow strap correctly.
  • Fire extinguisher: In case of a small fire due to an accident, you can purchase a small fire extinguisher. Again, it may be an unlikely event and undoubtedly unwanted, but better safe than sorry.
  • Long-lasting food and water: Make sure you add non-perishable food items and lots of water in case you get stranded. We recommend that you never leave your vehicle and wander. It would be best if you waited for emergency responders to locate you.
