Don't forget wellies or boots and socks, leggings will keep snow out

Whats the WD40 for? I guess sopping wet spark ignition things? In
which case an old towel is probably just as effective. Indeed a towel
or two should be on the list anyway. Drying/wiping hands etc

Unless you happen across a vechicle that has only just started to burn
I can't see much point. A small one ins't going to have the umph to
put out very much and the damage is so quick to body panels/paint work
the car rapid becomes a write off anyway. And why waste time trying
and probably failing to put out a fire if some one is trapped? I guess
you could use the fire extinguisher to break windows to get people
out. One of those emergancy hammers is probably better to break
toughend glass though. I've watch people try and break an old
toughened windscreen with a cold chisel and medium hammer, started
with a gentle tap, ended up really having to give it some wellie
before it went.

Good one. It's sad that one has to think of these things though.
