If you’re stuck in snow, and waiting to be pulled out, here are three quick pointers to keep you as safe as possible…
- Don’t keep the engine running all the time. Use short bursts every twenty minutes or so to warm up – but only if you are sure your exhaust pipe is clear. Otherwise, carbon monoxide poisoning is a real risk.
- Stay inside your vehicle because many people simply don’t believe how quickly hypothermia can hit in our bitter winters – until it’s too late.
- Keep moving with regular finger, hand, and stretching exercises to keep the blood flowing – again helps combat the cold.
