Here are some steps you can take to get ready for winter storms:

Create an Emergency Kit:

  2. Battery-powered or hand-crank radio.
  3. Flashlights with extra batteries.
  4. First aid kit.
  5. Blankets and warm clothing.

  7. Extra medication, if needed.
  8. Important documents (ID, insurance, medical records).

Maintain Heating Systems:

  1. Ensure your heating system is in good working condition. If you have a fireplace or wood-burning stove, have it inspected and cleaned.
  2. Check and change furnace filters regularly.
  3. Insulate your home and seal any drafts to conserve heat.
  4. Consider investing in a backup generator or alternative heating methods if you live in an area prone to extended power outages.

Winterize Your Home:

  1. Insulate pipes to prevent freezing and bursting. Let faucets drip during extremely cold weather to prevent freezing.
  2. Clean gutters to prevent ice dams.
  3. Trim overhanging tree branches to prevent them from falling on your home during heavy snow or ice.

Stay Informed:

  1. Sign up for emergency alerts from your local government and weather agencies.
  2. Follow local news and weather reports to stay updated on storm warnings and road conditions.
  3. Use a weather app or NOAA Weather Radio for real-time information.
  4. Assign responsibilities for each family member during an emergency.

Stay Safe During the Storm:

  1. Stay indoors during the storm whenever possible.
  2. Avoid unnecessary travel on icy or snow-covered roads.
  3. If you must go outside, dress in layers and wear appropriate winter gear.

Remember, winter storms can be unpredictable, so it’s essential to be well-prepared and take necessary precautions to keep yourself and your loved ones safe during the winter season.
