Health Tip: Preparing Your Car for Winter

(HealthDay News) -- 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.
