Prepare now for winter weather travel

Brrrrr! There’s a definite crispness to the air today, and this change in temperature arrived alongside Winter Weather Preparedness Day. Anticipate winter weather now and prepare by stocking your vehicle with an emergency kit:

  • First-aid kit
  • Cell phone charger
  • Flashlight and extra batteries
  • Water and snacks
  • Ice scraper and snow brush
  • Boots, gloves and warm clothes for everyone in the car
  • Music and games to help pass the time
  • Jumper cables
  • Flares and safety markers
  • Tire chains if you encounter winter road conditions

Start your trip with a full tank of gas, and fill up sooner rather than later. Share this information with friends, family and coworkers using these winter car kit infographics in English and Spanish.
