Winter weather related emergencies and disasters can strike quickly and without warning, so it is important to talk to your family about the hazards that could affect your area and to put a plan in place before severe weather hits. Establish meeting places, designate emergency contacts and record medical information to prepare for any emergency.

Having an emergency supply kit is essential to making it through severe winter weather. Ensure you and your family are equipped with flashlights, a first aid kit, a 3-day supply of food and water, and more. Follow these simple steps to ensure you are ready.
