Having an Emergency Kit For Your Vehicle is a Must All Year Round, But Especially So in the Winter.

CAA Manitoba spokesperson Nadia Matos says in addition to flashlights, first aid kits, jumper cables, and water and food that won’t spoil, having a shovel, winter clothing and footwear, ice scrapers and a snow brush can be crucial items whether you’re driving in the city or making a long trip on the highway.......

 

“On top of the emergency kit if you can plan your route as much as possible so that is thinking about what am I going to be doing today, am I going to be driving in the city and just staying within city limits or am going to be doing some long distance travelling and so if you plan your route and let someone know what your route is that’s going to be crucial as well to stay safe. So if you say to your partner I’m going to the city for a few hours, I’ll connect with you on my way back then your partner will know to look for you.  So in case the weather turns you’re doing your due diligence and you’re connecting with people and letting them know when you’re coming home so everybody can return home safe.”
