Tips for a Snow Plow Truck Winter Survival Kit

There is nothing more annoying than getting done with a job and feeling hungry or thirsty only to realize you don’t have anything prepared. No water, no snacks, and come to think of it, no other means of survival if something were to go amiss. No, we’re not referring to something going wrong with your plow like we covered in our previous blog post. Instead, we are referring to the brutal road conditions that we all encounter each year while plowing. I think we all know that things tend to go “amiss” quite frequently in the snow removal business. Not to worry though, by planning ahead and creating your own emergency survival kit for your snow plow truck you won’t get left in the cold.
