Winterize Your Vehicle

Posted at 2:30 p.m.

Fairfax County has already experienced several rounds of winter weather, including snow and ice/freezing rain, and no doubt more inclement weather is ahead.

Our Office of Emergency Management (OEM) encourages you to make sure that your car or truck is ready for more winter weather, but that you also make plans to put together — or update — an emergency supply kit for your car.

Whitney Kazragis, community outreach liaison with OEM, notes that it’s not too late to prepare your vehicle. She provides more details, including what items to have in your vehicle’s emergency kit (remember the mess in Atlanta two weeks ago?), in the video below.
