Winter Travel Safety

Hi Neighbors,

Many of us are planning that annual trip to visit family and friends.  Hopefully, the weather will be good for our travels.  Preparing well can make the trip easier.  We found these tips in the November edition of the BernCo at a Glance newsletter.

Prepare yourself and your vehicle; pack an emergency winter car kit:

  • Wool blanket, extra hat and gloves.
  • Jumper cables.
  • Water in small bottles (easier to thaw if frozen).
  • Food – such as protein/candy/granola bars; high in calories and ready to eat.
  • Extra cell phone batteries or charger.”

Be prepared for winter traveling:

  • Winterize your car and keep it well maintained.
  • Always travel with at least half a tank of gas.
  • Never leave your home without a charged cell phone.
  • Tell someone your route and when you are expected to arrive.
  • Know where you are going and avoid unfamiliar routes during inclement weather.
  • Check the weather before you travel.
  • Check the road conditions


Additional Travel Safety Reminder:
