Get ready for winter weather2

Winter Emergency Supply Kit

• Flashlight and extra batteries
• Portable radio or NOAA Weather Radio with extra batteries
• First-aid kit
• Essential prescription medicines
• Non-perishable Food
• Non-electric can opener
• Water (one gallon per person/per day)
• Baby items
• Extra blankets and sleeping bags
• Fire extinguisher

Family Emergency Communications Plan

Develop a ‘Family Emergency Communication Plan’ in case family members are separated from one another during a winter storm (a real possibility during the day when adults are at work and children are at school), and have a plan for getting back together.  Ask an out-of-state relative or friend to serve as the ‘family contact’.  After a disaster, it is often easier to call long distance.  Make sure everyone knows the name, address and telephone number of the contact person. 

Winter Emergency Car Kit

• Flashlight with extra batteries
• Charged cell phone
• Basic first-aid kit
• Necessary medications
• Pocket knife
• Blankets or sleeping bags
• Extra clothes (include rain gear, mittens, socks)
• High-calorie, non-perishable foods (dried fruits, nuts, canned food)
• Non-electric can opener
• Container of water
• Shovel
• Sand for generating traction
• Tire chains or traction mats
• Basic tool kit (pliers, wrench, screwdriver)
• Tow rope
• Brightly colored cloth to utilize as a flag

Auto Safety Steps

• About 70% of winter deaths related to snow and ice occur in automobiles.
• Keep your gas tank full.
• Install good winter tires with adequate tread. 
• Keep a windshield scraper and small broom for ice and snow removal. 
• Check your windshield wiper fluid and keep your gas tank at least half-full. 
• Plan long trips carefully, listening to the radio or NOAA Weather Radio for the latest weather forecasts and road conditions. 
• Travel during daylight hours, and if possible, take another person with you.
• If a blizzard traps you in your car, pull off the highway.  Turn on hazard lights and hang a distress flag from your radio antenna or window.
• Remain in your vehicle where rescuers are more likely to find you.  Do not set out on foot, unless you can see a building close by where you know you can take shelter.
• Run the engine and heater about 10 minutes each hour to keep warm.  When the engine is running, open the window slightly for ventilation.  Periodically clear snow from the exhaust pipe.
• Exercise to maintain body heat, but avoid overexertion.  In extreme cold, use road maps, seat covers and floor mats for insulation.  Huddle with passengers.
• Take turns sleeping.  One person should be awake at all times to look for rescue crews.
• Drink fluids to avoid dehydration.
• Be careful not to waste battery power.  Balance electricity energy needs: the use of lights, heat and radio.
• At night, turn on the inside light so work crews and rescuers can see you.

During a Winter Storm

• Dress for the season, wearing several layers of loose fitting, lightweight, warm clothing, rather than one layer of heavy clothing.  The outer garments should be tightly woven and water repellent.
• Mittens are better than gloves.
• Wear a hat; most body heat is lost through the top of the head.
• Cover your mouth with a scarf to protect your lungs.
• Be careful when shoveling snow.  Over-exertion can bring on a heart attack – a major cause of death in the winter.
• Watch for signs of frostbite: loss of feeling and white or pale appearance in the extremities such as fingers, toes, ear lobes or the tip of the nose.  If symptoms are detected, seek medical help immediately.
• Watch for signs of hypothermia: uncontrollable shivering, memory loss, disorientation, incoherence, slurred speech, drowsiness and apparent exhaustion.  If symptoms are detected, get the victim to a warm location, remove any wet clothing, warm the center of the body first and give warm, non-alcoholic beverages, if the victim is conscious.  Get medical help, as soon as possible.

After the Winter Storm

• Roads to allow plowing operations to proceed smoothly.
• Help dig out fire hydrants and storm drains in your neighborhood.
• Avoid parking too close to corners, allowing Public Safety vehicles and plows to maneuver safely.
• Be aware of children playing in the streets, particularly climbing on or running out from behind large snowdrifts. Parents should remind their children to be aware of plowing operations and traffic.
• Clear exhaust vents from Direct Vent Gas Furnace Systems to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning.
• Never run automobile until exhaust pipe has been cleared of snow.
• Make sure backup generators are well ventilated.
• Take your time shoveling.  Avoid overexertion.
• Use care around downed power lines. Assume a down wire is a live wire
