It doesn’t often snow in our area of Southern California, but on very rare occasions it has. We’ve more often encountered harsher winter weather while on the road in other climes. Rain is winter’s usual gift to us, drought conditions notwithstanding. Having our vehicle prepared for winter, or for any type of weather, is of utmost importance. The *New* Goodyear® Assurance® WeatherReady™ Tires at Sam’s Club have helped us be very prepared. And a DIY Emergency Car Kit enhances that preparedness. You can be Goodyear winter prepared and more, too!
It was Greek philosopher Heraclitus that said, “The only thing that is constant is change.” With constant weather changes and recent weather events making headlines, this old adage has certainly weathered the test of time. Summer will soon be in the rear view mirror making way for destination winter. To be prepared for what may lie ahead, there’s no time like the present to make preparations for any extremes winter may reach. A great place to start is with your vehicle. Different parts of the country are subject to a variety of weather conditions. Whatever the forecast, be it rain, sleet, snow, or full sun, the right tires on your vehicle make a big difference. Goodyear has been in the business of providing the best tires for all road conditions for a long time. The new Goodyear Assurance WeatherReady Tires are currently their best all-weather tire. And they’re now available at Sam’s Club in the Tire and Battery department.

DIY EMERGENCY CAR KIT
Start with a sturdy carrying bag. We chose backpacks because they’re easier to carry in the event you may need to evacuate your vehicle. We’re sharing our DIY tutorial for a basic emergency kit and recommend you include items that fit your needs, needs of your particular vehicle, and family needs.
Depicted above is a backpack we use as an Emergency Car Kit filled with items we’ve deemed essential for us. Below are some of the items including emergency water, bottled water, a water filter bottle, LED and traditional flares, snack/protein bars, and an emergency poncho, among others.
A list of items that works for us:
- Work gloves
- Jumper/booster cable
- Auto escape tool
- Multi-purpose tool
- Crank flashlight (no batteries required)
- Clean cloth
- Duct tape
- Ice Scraper
- Emergency Blanket
- Tire sealant
- Tire air gauge
- Zip ties
- Bungee cable
- First aid kit
- Emergency whistle
- Water – We have both light weight emergency packets and bottles
- It’s also a good idea to keep a gallon of water in your trunk if possible
- Water filter bottle
- Snack/protein bars
- MREs (Meals Ready to Eat)
First aid items, battery and non-battery flashlights, jumper cables, etc., shown above. Gloves, compass, lighter, all-purpose tool, etc., shown below. Mix and match contents that may meet your emergency needs while on the road away from home.
An additional recommendation is to also include a change of clothes, boots/sneakers and a jacket. You just never know what your emergency might be and what kind of weather you may be exposed to.
And there you have it. Your own personalized DIY Emergency Car Kit!
Be as safe as you can be on the road with new Goodyear Assurance WeatherReady Tires. And also with a DIY Emergency Car Kit, in the rare instance it may be needed.
