Emergency Preparedness Can Be a Key to Survival
We are all aware of the danger of driving on slick roads covered by snow or ice. If you must drive, prepare yourself for potential trouble.
Dr. Melissa Stein, St. Anthony's Emergency Management Officer and a member of the National Disaster Medical System's Disaster Medical Assistance Team, says there are some simple things you should do to help you survive if you become stranded.
- Dress warmly, don't count on your heater to work
- Bring a bottle of water
- Bring food, even if it's just a snack
- Keep a blanket in your car
- Fill up your gas tank
- Charge your mobile phone and have a charger with you
