Winter Emergency Car Kit

Icy road

Winter is just around the corner, which is why the service team at Mercedes-Benz of Modesto wants to ensure that you’re prepared for potentially hazardous weather conditions and slick roads. We’ve created a guide for the best car emergency kit to have in your vehicle to ensure you’re fully prepared this winter. We’re proud to serve as your go-to destination for your automotive service tips and tricks near Merced.

Winter Car Safety Kit

At Mercedes-Benz of Modesto, we want you to be fully prepared for the slick, icy roads, and unpredictable weather by having the necessary items if you end up stranded or your vehicle breaks down.

Below is a look at the winter car safety kit the Mercedes-Benz of Modesto service center recommends that Stockton-area drivers have in their vehicles this winter:

  • Battery cables
  • Ice scraper
  • Portable shovel
  • Items to help when stranded: flashlight, warning signaling cones, backup batteries, safety vest, and roadside triangles
  • Basic first-aid kit
  • Cell phone charger
  • Camera
  • Flat tire kit
  • Common 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’re hitting the roads this winter, you must be fully prepared for anything. Below are some tools and items to have on hand:

  • A tow strap will help if your Mercedes-Benz vehicle gets stuck in a ditch and you need another vehicle to help pull you out. Check your vehicle’s owner’s manual about the proper way of using a tow strap.
  • A fire extinguisher is handy in the event of a small fire. Just make sure that it’s intended for automotive use.
  • Long-lasting food and water are needed for long trips. Granola, protein bars, and water can last in your vehicle for about six months before they need to be replaced.

If you do end up stranded after going off the road due to the bad weather, stay inside or as close to your vehicle as possible. Never leave your vehicle and go out on your own. Emergency responders find your vehicle easily, but if you wander off on your own, you can be harder to find. You’ll be prepared with your winter car safety kit until help arrives.
