New Orleans hurricane preparation should include your car.
School's out and the unofficial start to summer has come and gone. Now we have a long, hot summer of fun to look forward to. Or at least that's what we hope. Hurricane season is here and as we in New Orleans know all too well, it's best to keep an eye on the weather reports while we're out having that fun.
We also know it's best to prepare ahead and to be ready. Just in case. That's why the New Orleans city government has a whole section of its website devoted to hurricane preparedness. Among the tips:
- Designate an out-of-town contact.
- Choose a pre-determined place to reunite.
- Stock up.
- Plan alternate routes out.
- Know how you will evacuate.
- Coordinate your emergency plan.
One other thing you should do is to make sure your car or truck is in good repair in case you have to evacuate. The last thing you need with a hurricane bearing down on New Orleans is to be stranded somewhere with car trouble. The best thing you can do to make sure your car or truck is good to go is make sure you provide that basic auto care now. And keep up with it.
Twin Tire and Auto Care is the best place to get those tires checked and the rest of that basic maintenance done. And, if there's something wrong, get one of Twin Tire's certified auto technicians to repair it now so you're not scrambling to find help in an emergency.
Twin Tire has been the New Orleans area's trusted auto care and auto repair shop since 1973. Locally owned, Twin Tire has three conveniently located New Orleans auto care centers to help you - Marrero, Hammond and Harvey. Twin Tire also has a Harahan location for heavy commercial vehicles.
While your car is here, sign up for the Twin Tire Rewards loyalty program. It's free to sign up and the more auto care you give to your car or truck, the more benefits you get. You get points for each qualified purchase. You can trade those points for more auto care or for travel perks. Or, you can donate them to a New Orleans charity, like the Children's Hospital of New Orleans.
