630 AM EST FRI NOV 21 2014

WAY FOR YOU TO STAY SAFE AND WARM OUTDOORS IS FOR YOU TO BE PREPARED.

MONITOR WEATHER FORECASTS. THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ISSUES
OUTLOOKS ON STORM POTENTIAL DAYS BEFORE IT ARRIVES. NATIONAL WEATHER
SERVICE WINTER WEATHER WATCHES GIVE UP TO TWO DAYS NOTICE OF
IMPENDING STORMS. NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WINTER WEATHER WARNINGS OR
ADVISORIES GIVE UP TO 24 HOURS NOTICE OF SIGNIFICANT WEATHER SOON TO

PERSPIRATION ALSO REDUCES YOUR CHANCE OF DEVELOPING FROSTBITE OR
HYPOTHERMIA.

IF YOU ARE CAUGHT OUTSIDE AWAY FROM SHELTER...YOUR MAIN CONCERNS ARE
TO STAY WARM AND DRY. PREPARE A LEAN-TO OR SNOW CAVE TO HELP PROTECT
YOU FROM PRECIPITATION AND WIND. BUILD A FIRE FOR HEAT AND TO
ATTRACT ATTENTION.

FOR YOUR VEHICLE...HAVE IT WINTERIZED. GOOD TIRES IMPROVE STEERING
ABILITY AND SHORTEN BRAKING DISTANCE ON SLIPPERY ROADS. IF YOUR
VEHICLE HAS ANTI-LOCK BRAKES...TEST THEM SO YOU KNOW HOW THEY WORK
IN EMERGENCY STOPS. FREQUENTLY CHECK WINDOW WASHER FLUID LEVELS
THROUGHOUT THE WINTER SO YOU DON/T RUN OUT WHEN YOU NEED IT MOST.

PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE FOR VEHICLES CAN REDUCE THE CHANCES OF
ENCOUNTERING CAR TROUBLE. MOST DRIVERS DON/T THINK ABOUT MAINTENANCE
UNTIL STRANDED ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD.

- CHECK TIRE PRESSURE AND TREAD DEPTH.

- CHECK BATTERY...EXHAUST SYSTEM...HEATER AND DEFROSTER. ENSURE
BATTERY IS NOT TOO OLD AND THAT THE TERMINALS ARE TIGHT AND FREE OF
CORROSION.

- CHECK ANTIFREEZE. MAKE SURE THAT 50/50 ANTIFREEZE-WATER MIXTURE IS
AT ITS PROPER RADIATOR LEVEL.

- CHANGE OIL EVERY 3000 TO 5000 MILES.

- CHECK WINDSHIELD WIPERS AND BLADES. REPLACE BLADES EACH YEAR AND
ENSURE EXTRA WIPER FLUID IS ON HAND.

- KEEP AN EMERGENCY KIT IN THE VEHICLE THAT INCLUDES AT A MINIMUM A
FLASHLIGHT...BLANKET...JUMPER CABLES...CLOTHES...TOOL KIT AND FOOD.

THE BEST WAY TO STAY SAFE IS TO HAVE A PLAN...TO KNOW YOUR LIMITS
AND TO USE COMMON SENSE. BE WEATHER-READY. ON SATURDAY WE WILL REVIEW
THE ITEMS COVERED THIS WEEK.
