Equip your car for winter

(HealthDayNews) -- Every winter, you should stock your car with a cold weather survival kit. Getting stuck or stranded in extremely cold weather is always a possibility.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests you include these items:

  • Blankets and a first aid kit.
  • A can and waterproof matches to melt snow for water.
  • A windshield scraper, collapsible shovel and booster cables.
  • Road maps, a compass, a flashlight and extra batteries.
  • Canned compressed air with sealant for emergency tire repair.
  • A tool kit.
