Winter Weather Requires Added Prep For Fleet Vehicles

With winter upon us and inclement weather, would you be prepared to "weather a storm" in your assigned vehicle?

 
Some things you might want to think about carrying with you this time of year are gloves, an ice scraper, a lighter and a large bottle of water.  
 
It is possible that you could find the ribbon of highway you are on shut down due to snow, ice, fog or other road condition making it impossible to continue forward. Ideally, you would be turned around. But, consider the fact that you may not be able to move forward or backward and may need to turn off your vehicle to conserve fuel. Or, you may get stuck in a remote location and need to start a fire either for warmth or as a signal. Be prepared!
