It pays to be prepared, and if you are planning on taking a car journey in the winter months, then a cold weather emergency kit could be extremely useful. It's easy to become complacent when setting out in the car, thanks to temperature control and heated seats, but if you run into mechanical problems and you find yourself on the side of the road, you’ll be happy to be prepared. Follow these tips for what to pack in a DIY cold weather emergency kit, and you'll be safe - not sorry.

Choose Your Container
Choosing the right container is the first step to take. The idea is to provide an emergency kit that can keep you safe for a few hours, so you don't need anything too large. A large canvas bag or a medium-large plastic container would work. If possible, always keep your emergency kit inside the main cabin with you. While the trunk might seem like a more logical place to store it, if the rear of the car is damaged, you may not be able to get to it.

Essential Cold Weather Wear
Choose some warm blankets and clothing. Emergency blankets are light and inexpensive, and will help keep you warm if the heating fails. Gloves, scarves, and woolen hats should also be included. Try to make sure that your emergency kit holds enough for all the occupants of your car, and make sure it is fully packed when the whole family is going on a journey.

Light, First Aid, Action
Your emergency kit should always carry a flashlight and batteries. You never know when you will need help finding your way, even if it is just to find items inside the car. A flashlight can also be used to signal for help. While it is normally unwise to leave the car in the event of an emergency, you may need the flashlight to help you find assistance. A small first aid kit may be required to help you tend to minor injuries, too, so make sure that you have one of these in your emergency kit as well. Ensure that it contains wet wipes, disinfectant, antiseptic, and pain relievers.

Gear Up
Some basic car tools may also be useful. A set of wrenches, some screwdrivers, and a booster cable for the battery are minimum requirements. Don't underestimate the value of other items like clean cloths and a small towel and throw in a roll of duct tape. This could be useful for making a quick, temporary repair to a broken windshield.

Emergency Entertainment
While you're waiting for help, you may find that you get bored, too, particularly if kids are involved. Pack some simple games to keep the kids occupied and a book or two for the adults. Drinks and snacks are likely to be very welcome, too. Choose long-life sweets and snacks that won't go stale, and don't be afraid to discard healthy eating principles for once. Sugary foods help keep energy levels up and may boost otherwise depressed moods. Ensure that you have plenty of drinking water as well. A large bottle of water may be required for drinking or for cleaning up other parts of the car.

Testicular Cancer Foundation Fundraising Pages - DCH Toyota City

Testicular Cancer Foundation Fundraising Pages - DCH Toyota City

A spectacular
group of DCH Toyota City employees have committed to raising awareness about
testicular, prostate and other male cancers. The idea of them not shaving
their beards is a way to draw attention to the hair that many cancer patients
typically lose. Instead of using the money on shaving and grooming this
month, these guys will donate that money to research. We ask that Mamaroneck
and all of our Westchester friends and family donate to our fundraising page
below and better yet, join us No Shave November too!

Matt W,
Antonio M, Edgar G, Albert C, Neil S, Joe C, and Mike V have ditched their
razors this November for the No-Shave Campaign – growing beards to boost
awareness for men's health and cancer awareness. They shed their facial hair
and will stay Shave-Free until November 28th! Stay tuned to our Facebook
page to watch as they’re beards progress, week by week.

Join us November 19th in our Service Center for a “Pie-in-the Face”
Fundraiser… $1 per pie, no limit to how many times you try. All proceeds go to
Men’s Cancer Research

If you donate, please comment on and hashtag
your generosity #dchtoyotacity #gonuts

If you choose to join us, please make sure to post your weekly pics so we can
see your progression. Then join us on Fri 11/28 for a No Shave extravaganza!!!

DCH Toyota City encourages men to grow their facial hair this month as a way of
helping to get people thinking about these terrible cancers.

Toyota TeenDrive365 has safe driving tips for parents & teens



On October 11th, 2014, Teen Drivers spent 2.5 hours learning effective tips to staying safe while driving. Though Toyota vehicles are equipped with the most advanced safety technology, we understand that these advances are only effective if the driver is well mannered behind the wheel. In an effort to encourage great habits behind the wheel, Toyota has invested tremendous resources to create the TeenDrive365 initiative.

DCH Toyota City was thrilled to host this week’s Teen Safe Driving Clinic. Teens from across Westchester County New York were invited to attend one of two sessions with a parent. The day was filled with classroom style tutorials, an interactive state-of-the art driving simulator, breakout sessions and a scavenger hunt.

Toyota’s TeenDrive365 website has plenty of safe driving resources and tips for both parents and teens. Don’t forget to take the Parent/Teen Safety Challenge quiz and let us know your score.

$100 movie packs were distributed to two luck winners, have fun and drive safely. Don’t forget to set your mirrors the right way… after all, you already know the color of your car (wink).
