Put car safety on theto-dolist this Thanksgiving

title

Por Lisa Braxton

For some of us one of the biggest undertakings before sitting down to the Thanksgiving meal this week won’t be preparing food or figuring out how to keep guests entertained, but traveling to where the Thanksgiving dinner is being served.

I’ll be crossing two state lines to get to my Thanksgiving destination and many people will have to travel further. Getting the car checked out before leaving town is always a good idea. NFPA’s Car Fire Safety Tips sheet has suggestions designed to keep you safe as you travel short or long distances.

  • Have your car serviced regularly by a professionally trained mechanic.
  • Si encuentra fugas, your car is not running properly; que lo revisen.
  • Know danger signs, including cracked or loose wiring or electrical problems, and rapid changes in fuel or fluid level or engine temperatures.

You can review all of NFPA’s safety tips sheets on other important topics as well as our easy-to-read handouts in additional languages.
