Winter weather safety and kits are important, here's why:

You never know when you are going to need a winter safety kit, and that is why you should always have one on hand. Inclement winter weather can cause traffic nightmares for anyone at any time and it is always best to be prepared.

In this drone video from earlier this week, a crash on I-44 just outside of Springfield, Mo., forced officials to close the highway for 15 hours. Two people were killed, and at least 60 vehicles were involved. 

Practicing safe winter weather driving and packing an emergency kit is essential for scary situations just like this one. 

Winter is not over yet, here's our recommended list that you should pack during these cold winter months:

  • A flash light
  • Extra warm clothing
  • Extra batteries
  • Extra Vehicle Fluid
  • A shovel
  • Battery-powered radio
  • Non-perishable snack food
  • Bottled water
  • Matches and candles
  • First aid kit
  • Pocket knife
  • Tow chain and/or rope
  • Booster cables
  • Road flares
  • Fluorescent Distress flag
  • Blankets
