BEND, OR -- It’s the season of heading “over the river and through the woods” through less than ideal weather and road conditions.  Lisa Stroup with the Oregon Mountain River Chapter of the Red Cross says with a little advance prep, your car can be a safe haven … even in extreme conditions.  "It’s really important, and I know it can be expensive sometimes, but make sure your car is full of fuel all the time. That’s a good backup to have heat and a place to be. Water is very important." 

Stroup suggests drivers create a “go bag” and keep it in their vehicle in case of a crash or a breakdown. She says, "that kit in your car with the ability to stay warm- extra clothes, extra socks, blankets, water, some backup food, flashlight … basic things, again, things we probably have in our house already that we can gather up, put in a duffel bag and put it in our car in less than 15 minutes."
