What safety pros keep in their winter emergency kits

We asked SFM’s loss prevention representatives what we’d find in the winter emergency kits they keep in their cars in case of roadside emergencies.

Their safety kits include:

  • Magnetized emergency flashers you can stick on the car
  • Fleece hats, scarves and mittens
  • Tow ropes
  • A blanket, such as a Mylar emergency blanket
  • First aid supplies
  • Hand and foot warmers
  • Matches and candles
  • A whistle
  • A flashlight and spare batteries
  • Warm boots
  • High visibility vest
  • Shovel
  • A lithium battery jump starter, which can also charge cell phones and provide light
  • Packaged snacks such as nuts and granola bars
  • A snow suit
  • Road flares and warning triangles
  • Chemical light sticks
  • Traction footwear
