Header_Severe Winter Weather 2009, Preparedness Tips & Fact Sheets
The extreme cold and heavy ice or snowfall that accompanies winter storms can be debilitating and dangerous. Winter storms can affect everyone, even those who typically experience mild winters. Heavy snowfall can be blinding for drivers and dangerous for those it traps indoors. Winter storms may also include high winds, sleet, freezing rain, frozen roads, power outages and dangerously cold temperatures.

To prepare for Severe Winter Weather:
Make an emergency preparedness kit
for your home and your vehicle that can be accessed by all family members.
Develop a family emergency plan to assist you in preparing as a family for all types of emergencies and responses. Make note of alternative means of travel.
Stay informed. Know winter storm terminology and how severe weather may have an effect on your planned activities.
