Prep for Winter, Not Disaster!

Being a trucker also means being prepared for the most unpredictable weather. By now, you’ve probably learned that it’s better to be safe than sorry. This winter, tackle the snow and ice upfront by making a winter car kit to keep in your truck at all times! Not only will the kit keep you safe in case of an emergency, but it will also let you drive with ease knowing that you beat the winter at its own game.

But a plastic tote and fill it with the following items:

  • booster cables
  • a flashlight
  • extra batteries
  • rope
  • a windshield scraper
  • battery powered radio
  • bottled water
  • non perishable snacks
  • matches
  • first aid kit
  • pocket knife
  • blankets
  • necessary medication

In addition to making this kit, make sure you winterize your diesel tank, and always keep it half full. In the event of a crash, make sure you stay in your vehicle–walking in a storm is very dangerous, and your vehicle makes a good shelter.

Stay safe and warm this winter!
