Prepare your car for emergencies when traveling

Are you prepared for a sudden emergency when traveling? Is your car fit for long trips no matter the natural disaster?

You can avoid many dangerous weather problems by planning ahead. Plan long trips carefully, listening to the radio or television for the latest weather forecasts and road conditions. You can also download the FEMA mobile application to receive severe weather alerts for up to five locations across the U.S. 

If bad weather is forecasted, drive only if necessary. Additionally, have a mechanic check the following items on your car:

  • Antifreeze levels to ensure they are sufficient enough to avoid freezing;
  • The wear on your vehicle’s brakes and the brake fluid level; and
  • Adequate tire tread.

Plus, keep a kit of emergency supplies in your car in case of an emergency.
