Winter Weather Extremes


 It’s getting chilly out there. And that change can mean only one thing - winter weather.


While we can’t stop snow, sleet, or freezing rain, we can be prepared. Making sure you are as ready as possible is vital for having a safe winter season.

According to the latest information from FEMA, there are some basic steps to take before a winter storm:

Add the following to your basic emergency preparedness kit.
  • Sand to improve traction.
  • Snow shovels and other snow removal equipment.
  • Sufficient heating fuel. You may become isolated in your home and regular fuel sources may be cut off. 
  • Extra clothing and blankets.
  • Make a family communications plan.
  • Listen to NOAA Weather Radio or to commercial radio or television newscasts   for the latest information, and follow instructions given by local officials.
  • Minimize travel. Keep a disaster supplies kit in your vehicle - especially if you are in an area hit by a pandemic or riots.
