Your battery can take a jump start - provided it is not dead. The alternator will recharge it after about 30 minutes; time enough to reach a service station for a full charge. Use the proper method.
But if your batter is dead and you need a jump start, be sure to use the proper method.

But his way to jump start your car is definitely the best procedure for safety and success!
