Do you have a Severe Winter Weather Preparedness Plan?

One of the primary concerns is the winter weather’s ability to knock out heat, power and communications services to your home or office, sometimes for days at time. Heavy snowfall and extreme cold can immobilize an entire region.

For this reason, National Weather Service refers to winter storms as the “Deceptive Killers” because most deaths are indirectly related to the storm. Instead, people die in traffic accidents on icy roads and of hypothermia from prolonged exposure to cold.

It is important to be prepared for winter weather before it strikes. Here are a few quick tips to keep you safe during Severe Winter Weather:

  • Make a Family Communications Plan. Your family may not be together when disaster strikes, so it is important to know how you will contact one another, how you will get back together and what you will do in case of an emergency.
  • Listen to a NOAA Weather Radio or other local news channels for critical information from the National Weather Service (NWS). Be alert to changing weather conditions.
  • Minimize travel. If travel is necessary, keep a disaster supplies kit in your vehicle.

Bring pets/companion animals inside during winter weather. Move other animals or livestock to sheltered areas with non-frozen drinking water
