[IDHS] Prepare Vehicles For Heavy Snow and Low Temperatures

Entry Description
Prepare Vehicles for Heavy Snow and Low Temperatures

Just like the home, it is important to prepare vehicles for severe winter weather conditions. Take steps before weather arrives to ensure the safety of vehicles.

Fill the gas tanks of all vehicles you own. Low temperatures can quickly freeze gas lines, especially if the tank is near empty.

If necessary, run the vehicle’s engine for a few minutes as needed throughout the day. This helps keep the engine and fuel lines warm and prevents freezing.

Gather preparedness supplies for vehicles in case travel is necessary. Such supplies should include bottled water, extra blankets, a flashlight with extra batteries, and chargers for cell phones and mobile devices.
