...Illinois Winter Weather Preparedness Week...
...Missouri Winter Weather Awareness Day...

Your automobile can be your best friend or worst enemy during a
winter storm. Get your can winterized before winter arrives. The
following items should be checked to ensure they are in proper
working order.

Ignition system
Heather/Cooling system
Brakes
Fuel system
Windshield wipers
Battery
Defroster
Lights
Tires
Exhaust system

A leaky exhaust system can be extremely dangerous. Carbon
monoxide, an odorless and colorless gas, can build up inside the
car creating a deadly situation. If in heavy snow, keep the
exhaust pipe clear to keep carbon monoxide from building up inside
the vehicle.

Keep water out of your fuel tank by keeping it full as much as
possible.
