Getting Snowed In & General Winter Survival

Many of us have experienced the common emergency of being snowed in during the wintertime. However, even if you haven’t, you’ve likely experienced driving over dangerous ice on the road, or having to dig your car out of your driveway so you can get to work.

Unfortunately, winter is one of the most popular times for emergencies like hypothermia, blizzards, and power outages to occur. And when snow + ice combine, it can lead into a host of problems that may require you to break out your survival gear.

Here are some important survival tools to have in your home so that you’re prepared for disaster this winter:

1 – Warm Clothing

Earmuffs, hats, gloves, snow pants, jackets, winter boots and other warm clothing are crucial to helping you keep your body temperature up and avoid hypothermia.  It’s also incredibly important to have warm wool blankets on-hand to curl up in when it gets too cold.

We’ve got a great wool blanket here – it’s super warm and insulating, and it dries quickly when wet, allowing you to get toasty warm in a hurry. Check it out by clicking here or on the image below.
