Community Column by Don Butt (October 2017)

Town of Mono, ON (Don Butt) Here it is coming into fall and we should be thinking of what we call "winter maintenance" for our vehicles. A good service man will do a multi-point inspection of your vehicle, make sure liquid levels are up, check antifreeze, tires, etc. It’s a bit too early for snow tires, but change before the first snow. Also it is good practice to carry an emergency kit (blanket, first aid kit, flashlight, pliers and screwdrivers, can of compressed air or 12-volt pump, etc)  plus at all seasons, a fire extinguisher and know how to use it !( your local fire dept. can do this training). A large sign with "call Police" on it is also a good idea.
