Do you ever worry about the cold? More specifically, do you worry about having a car accident in the cold? That can be a scary time and this winter looks to be especially cold. According to this article we will have a terribly cold winter with plenty of snow.

That sure does not help in the worry of what to do in case of a car accident in the freezing weather.

So, what do you need?

Here is a list of several items that help ensure your survival should something terrifying like an accident in the middle of winter.

  • First Aid Kit
  • Extra battery phone charger
  • Wool blanket

  • Protein or granola bars
  • Jumper cables

Why Certain Tools Like a Window Punch?

You may be asking why a window punch, but they may be a a necessity. Sometimes when you get into an accident your doors will not open, and your windows will not roll down.

The result? You are stuck inside.

What if your car lands in freezing water, or what if it catches on fire and there is no one around to break your window? Then you are stuck inside with little hope. Using a window punch in this case could save your life. Use these on the driver or passenger side window and it will crack, and crack again and you will be able to get out.
