When I did my two posts on having an emergency pack ready for any situation, I did not know before hand that September is National Preparedness month. This is important enough that even CarWise Automotive Repair And Maintenance Smyrna linked to an article about the subject on FaceBook.
Would your car be ready if you had to leave at a moment’s notice? If you were stranded in your car, would you be prepared? During National Preparedness Month in September, the non-profit Car Care Council is reminding drivers of the importance of regular maintenance and do-it-yourself checks, as well as a stocked emergency kit.
“Emergencies and natural disasters come in a variety of forms, and you don’t always have time to prepare,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. “It is important and gives you peace of mind to know that your vehicle is always ready for the task.”The article has a good list of things to keep an eye on or check for your and your families safety.
