Winter Survival Kit

 

Safety Survival KitWinter in Canada can be a toss-up. Either it's really cold with little snow, or it's fairly mild with a lot of snow. Well, who are we kidding: it's unpredictable at best!
 
Nevertheless, you should always include items that would help you survive 12-24 hours without the benefit of the in-cab heater. Here is a must-have winter survival kit for driving in the winter:

 

 

  • Sleeping bags or blankets
  • Matches and candles
  • Flashlight (extra batteries)
  • Sack of sand or cat litter (good for traction)
  • Bungee cords
  • Non-perishable high energy foods (protein bars)
  • Paper towels and/or toilet tissue
  • Metal coffee can that can be used to heat water
  • Warm hat, mittens, gloves, boots, etc.
  • Bottled water
  • Small hatchet or saw
  • Tow chain or strap, come-alongs
  • Wire and rope have a multitude of uses
  • First aid kit, including any prescription/medications needed
  • A shovel (one with a flat blade is preferable). Always use caution when shovelling snow, as overexertion is not advisable in a survival situation
  • Windshield scraper and snowbrush
  • Washer fluid, extra oil, fuel filter, emissions compliant diesel conditioner
  • Booster cables
  • Basic tool kit: pliers/vise grips, crowbar and hammer, screwdrivers, adjustable wrench and 5/16, 7/16, and 9/16 wrenches, roll of duct tape, can of WD-40
