This is your final warning: frigid temps and icy roads are on the way this winter in Indiana. Before the worst of the season hits Mishawaka, consider preparing your vehicle in advance so you can avoid catastrophe in case disaster strikes while you’re on the road. Our team at Jordan Ford has compiled a list of items you should consider putting in a winter emergency kit for your car.
- Warm items: Bring along blankets, hats, thick socks, and gloves to help stave off the chill on your winter drives. If your vehicle dies when it’s freezing outside, you’ll be thankful you remembered to pack these items as you wait for help.
- First-Aid: No matter what time of the year it is, you should always have a handy first-aid kit at hand. Make sure to include items like band-aids, alcohol, gauze, antiseptic ointment, and medical wrap so you can care for yourself or a loved one gets hurt on the way to your destination.
- Tools: Consider putting a small snow shovel, ice scraper, jumper cables, flashlight, road flares, and a multi-tool in your vehicle. You never know when these items might come in handy for you or another driver on the road.
Most importantly, never tackle winter road conditions without a thorough winterizing. Call the service department at Jordan Ford in Mishawaka, IN, to schedule your appointment today.
