Winter Emergency Car Kit

Car tires on winter road covered with snow

At Ryan Buick GMC, we care about helping our past and potential customers stay as safe as possible on Minot roads. Preparing for winter conditions is one of the most responsible things the community can do to ensure safety as the seasons change. In the following guide, discover the best items to put in a winter emergency car kit. If your vehicle needs any maintenance or repairs before winter arrives, schedule service at our Ryan Buick GMC service department.

The Best Winter Car Safety Kit

In the event of an unfortunate winter accident— whether it’s a vehicle collision or getting stuck in a ditch caused by slick, icy, or snowy conditions in Bismarck— it’s important to have some essential items. These items can either help you get unstuck or provide you what you need as you wait for help to arrive. We recommend supplying your vehicle with the following items for the best car emergency kit for winter:

  • Ice scraper
  • Portable shovel
  • Basic first-aid kit
  • Cell phone charger
  • Jumper cables
  • Flat tire kit
  • Emergency tool kit
  • Fire extinguisher

Items to help when stranded:

  • Tow rope
  • Flashlight
  • Warning signaling cones or roadside triangles
  • External battery pack
  • Safety vest
  • Gloves
  • Blanket
  • Rain poncho
  • Rags
  • Boots
  • Hat

A common mistake drivers can make is running an errand during a New Town winter while unprepared. A quick run to the market or the store without a proper coat, hat, gloves, and shoes still presents the dangerous conditions that a long road-trip could. In the event you have to pull over on the side of the road and exit your vehicle to address an issue, you need to be dressed for the weather.

Get Winter Ready at Ryan Buick GMC

If you make the aforementioned precautionary preparations, you will be well-equipped for Minot winter. If you’d like to winterize your vehicle with winter tires or other exterior accessories, contact our genuine parts department and get the help you need today!
