Emergency Preparedness Winter Car Kit

Everyone needs a gentle reminder to start or update a emergency preparedness Winter car kit so if they find themselves stranded on the side of the road, they can help themselves or stay safe until help arrives. This list of items could help save your life or your passengers. The odds of having a driving emergency is much greater in winter than in the other three seasons due to weather conditions, low temperatures and other drivers. Check out this list from Hoosier Homemade.
