Health Tip: Preparing Your Car for Winter

By on December 23, 2019

Winter storms and cold temperatures can be dangerous. But if you get your car ready for cold weather, you can have a safer winter, says the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The CDC suggests:

  • Service the radiator and maintain antifreeze.
  • Check the tread on all tires, or replace tires with all-weather or snow tires.
  • Keep your gas tank full to avoid ice in the tank and fuel lines.
  • Use a wintertime formula in your windshield washer.

The CDC also encourages you to prepare a winter emergency kit for your vehicle. It should include blankets, food and water, compass and maps, a first-aid kit, plastic bags, car supplies and a flashlight.
