Keeping your car healthy and safe this holiday season

Winter is here, and it’s just the beginning. Staying on top of your routine car maintenance is essential to a safe holiday season.

At CarCare To Go, we are passionate about keeping your vehicle at peak performance, and these basic tips are sure to keep you on the road into the New Year.

 1. Check Your Fluids — A routine oil change may be at the top of your list, but cold weather makes it important for you to maintain other fluids as well. This includes anti-freeze to keep your engine components protected in extreme temperatures, brake fluid to ensure you can come to a safe stop in slippery conditions, and potentially wiper fluid with de-icer to give yourself maximum visibility in hazardous conditions.

 2. Tires — Colder air likely also means a drop in tire pressure. Not only can salt and melting snow mean more debris around your tires, a leak or puncture can quickly turn into a serious and expensive problem. Regularly check the pressure of your tires, and keep an emergency patch or fill system on hand.

 3. Battery — Winter is a challenging time for batteries and keeping them clean and charged is important. If you’re traveling for weeks or months at a time, consider detaching your battery and storing it in a safe indoors location to prevent battery drain.

 4. Emergency Supplies — Finally, the most important accessory your vehicle has; it’s driver. Protect yourself in the winter months and plan for emergencies that may have you stuck for hours or overnight in your vehicle. Keep an emergency box handy in your backseat with a blanket, flashlight, emergency phone charger, and non-perishable food and drinks like granola bars or bottled water. Keeping a small jug of sand, cat litter, or anti-friction mats can also help you get out of a slippery situation — even if it’s just your driveway.

It is the decision of the United States Department of Defense (DoD) Washington Headquarters Services (WHS) to implement the Proposed Action: the 2024 Pentagon Reservation Master Plan Update (Pentagon Master Plan) as the framework to guide future decisions regarding land use and infrastructure at the Pentagon site and Mark Center. The Pentagon Master Plan aims to provide an update to the existing conditions at the Pentagon and Mark Center and presents projects and revisions to land use categorizations that will address the specific needs to reduce the Pentagon’s environmental impacts and advance sustainability, security, and resilience. The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) review has been completed through preparation of a Final Environmental Assessment (EA) to evaluate environmental impacts arising from implementation of the projects. WHS has concluded that no significant impacts to the human or natural environment will result from implementation of any projects, and recognized negative effects will be reduced by adherence to standard best management practices, applicable permit and consultation conditions, and standard operating procedures. This decision is further documented in the Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) signed on March 20, 2024.

This notice announces the availability of the FONSI to implement the 2024 Pentagon Reservation Master Plan Update.

For further information and to request a copy of the Final EA or FONSI, please contact Brian King, Environmental and Sustainability Program Manager, WHS/Facilities Services Directorate/Standards and Compliance Division/Environmental and Sustainability Branch; (703-614-3658 or [email protected]).
