Winter Car Safety Kit

Whether you’re from the Hudson or Lowell area, you’ll be dealing with slick, icy roads and unpredictable winter weather this season. The Tulley Mazda team wants to make sure you have all the necessary items in the event your vehicle breaks down. There are quite a few important items you’ll want in your winter car safety kit. The Tulley Mazda service team can help you find what you need. Items you should add to your emergency tool kit for your car include:

  • 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, 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 have any plans on driving cross-country for the holidays this winter, it’s also important to consider adding the following items to your list to ensure you’re properly prepared for anything:

  • Tow strap: This handy tool will be helpful if your Mazda vehicle gets stuck in a ditch and you need another vehicle to help pull you out. Refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual about the proper way of using a tow strap.
  • Fire extinguisher: It’s good to have one in the event of a small fire. Make sure the fire extinguisher you purchase is intended for automotive use.
  • Long-lasting food and water: It’s always best to have some water and long-lasting food, especially on long trips. Granola, protein bars, and water can last in your vehicle for about six months before they need to be replaced.
