Preparing a winter emergency kit for your Toyota

Living in Fort McMurray means that if you want to head out of town in the winter you have a long dangerous road to travel. A great way to stay safe is being prepared. It is always a good idea to have an emergency kit in your vehicle, but this is especially important during winter when getting stuck somewhere can be extremely dangerous. 

Your winter emergency kit should include the following important items.

  • Jumper cables

  • Flashlight and spare batteries

  • Blankets

  • Shovel

  • Ice scraper

  • Sand

  • Extra clothing

  • Water

  • Energy bars

  • Cell phone

  • Roadside assistance membership

  • Cayanna Pepper ( Put in in the tips of your gloves or in your socks and it keeps you hands and feet warm) 

A well-stocked emergency kit can do a lot to keep you safe, though if you are heading out in particularly harsh conditions tell a friend or family member where you are going and when you expect to be back.

Ensuring that your vehicle is in good condition is also vital, so have it thoroughly inspected by a qualified mechanic before winter sets in. Winter tires are also a must and right now Noral Toyota is offering our winter tire price match guarantee.
