Before winter approaches, add the following supplies to your emergency kit.

  • Rock salt or more environmentally safe products to melt ice on walkways...
  • Sand to improve traction.
  • Snow shovels and other snow removal equipment.
  • Sufficient heating fuel...Store a good supply of dry, seasoned wood for your fireplace or wood-burning stove.
  • Adequate clothing and blankets to keep you warm.

It's also good to have a mechanic check the following items on your car:

  • Antifreeze levels
  • Battery and ignition system 
  • Brakes
  • Exhaust system 
  • Fuel and air filters
  • Heater and defroster 
  • Lights and flashing hazard lights 
  • Oil 
  • Thermostat 
  • Windshield wiper equipment 
  • Install good winter tires

Please note: If bad weather is forecast, drive only if absolutely necessary. Make sure your tires have adequate tread. All-weather radials are usually adequate for most winter conditions.
