The importance of having a prepped car
The devastating Oregon fires and evacuation notices we recently experienced have made us recognize a few things: Oregonians are amazing citizens with grit and kindness for their community, and preparation can never be underestimated.
We know it's important to have our cars in working order, after all, they carry our most precious cargo, our loved ones. Tires with proper tread and inflation levels for traction, timely oil and filter changes to keep the toxins at bay, and cars free from strange smells, noisy knocks or surprising jolts are all vital for its ability to function as intended.
In times of crisis, your car takes on an even greater importance. It could potentially save your lives if you need to quickly evacuate. Fleeing is not the time to worry if your car will "make it." You never know when an emergency will present itself, like a quick trip to the emergency room, fire, earthquake or flood and the reliability of your car is crucial.
Easy tips for car prepping:
--Keep your gas tank above half full
--Place necessities in your car such as water, snacks, blankets, flares in case you are stranded in ice or traffic
--Have emergency tools like tire lift kit and jumper cables accessible, and learn how to use them
--Download a navigation app that uses real-time to help you decide the best route to take
