4 The Glenville Democrat/ Pathfinder February 17, 1977 Advice for snowbound drivers Stuck in a car in a snowstorm, miles from the nearest town. You didn't think it would ever happen to you, and you are unprepared. What can you do? First, stay calm, advises Tom Bean, safety specialist, West Virginia University Center for Extension and Continuing Education. Avoid overexertion and overex- posure. Strenuous acts like pushing your car or shoveling snow may cause a heart attack in cold weather conditions. Wet clothes are not warm clothes. If you perspire, you have too much on. Several thin layers of clothing will keep you warmer than one thick layer. Provide for ventilation of the body by keeping clothing open at the neck. Stay in your car. Bean recom- mends. It is shelter and where you are more likely to be found. You can become quickly disoriented when trying to walk in blowing snow. If you have a Citizens' Band Radio, turn to Channel Nine and request help. Keep fresh air in your car. Freezing wet and wind-driven snow can seal the passenger compartment and suffocate you. Keep the downward window open about an inch when you run the motor and heater. Be sure snow has not blocked the exhaust pipe. Exercise from time to time by c!apping hands and moving arms and legs vigorooslv, he says, Chanue body positions often, eoeoooeooooeoooooeooeoooo How To Take : Keep the dome light on at night to make the car visible to snow plows or rescue crews. If alone, stay awake If not. take turns keeping watch while others sleep. Automobile parts can sometimes be used for emergency tools, Bean says. A hubcap or sunvisor may be used as a shovel. Seat covers can serve as blankets. Floor mats may be placed against windows on the upwind side to help reduce drafts. Engine oil burned in a hubcap creates a smoke signal visible for miles, Bean notes. To light the oil, prime with a little gasoline or use paper for starter fuel. Exercise caution when working with the materials, and do it a safe distance from the car. An automobile horn can be heard for as far as a mile downwind, he says. Use it to signal help, Businessmen.
