Must-Have Items for your Roadside Emergency Kit

4 Dec

November has come and gone, meaning that the next few months are fixing for wild weather around Beckley. Unfortunately, you have a life to lead and things to do, and so you can’t just shut down when the going gets rough. This means that you’ll be facing inclement weather head on; sometimes, it can get the better of you.

That’s why it’s arguably even more important in the winter to have a fully-stocked roadside emergency kit.

We at Mountaineer Ford want you to be safe and sound all winter long, and so here are our suggestions for your roadside emergency kit:

  • Jumper cables
  • Tools (wrenches, jack, screwdrivers, pliers)
  • Warm blankets
  • Extra fluids
  • Flares
  • Flashlight
  • Batteries
  • Electrical/duct tape
  • Spare cellphone battery
  • External cellphone charger
  • Ice scraper
  • Compact snow shovel
  • Extra coat/boots/socks
  • First aid kit
  • Canned foods/bottled water
  • Spare tire
  • Fix-a-Flat
  • Car manual
  • Physical maps

Of course, there are plenty of other things that you can always keep handy, and it’s never a bad idea to adjust your needs based on the season, but consider these items good starting points for your roadside emergency kit.
