FARGO, N.D. — Winter Survival Kit, a free program available for iPhones and Android smartphones, is both a primer to help motorists prepare for winter driving and a beacon when things go badly.
It can pinpoint a motorist’s location, call 911, notify friends and family, and monitor how long the gas will hold out.
The app also gives potentially life-saving alerts when users tap a big red button on its simple home screen that reads, “I’m Stranded!” Among the advice: Stay with your vehicle and keep the tailpipe clear of snow.
