Items to add to your car before snow arrives

LANSING, MI (WLNS) – With the heavy, wet snow headed our way, it’s important to make sure you’re ready when you head out on the roads.

Michigan State Police suggest everyone have an emergency kit at hand in your car with the following items:

  • Windshield scraper
  • Flashlight
  • Extra batteries
  • Extra gloves and socks
  • A blanket to keep warm
  • And a bottle of water to keep hydrated.
  • Some other items to keep on hand are
  • A battery powered radio
  • Snack food
  • Matches
  • Any medications you may need
  • And a tow chain or rope

This list may sound like a lot, but all of it should be able to fit in a plastic tub that you can keep in your trunk.

We welcome thoughts and comments from our viewers. We ask that everyone keep their remarks civil and respectful. Postings that contain profanity, racist, or potentially libelous remarks will be deleted. We will delete any commercial postings, as well.
