Winter Storms | A Preparedness Guide

Did you know…..

Each year, dozens of Americans die due to exposure to cold.  Add to that number, vehicle accidents and fatalities, fires due to dangerous use of heaters and other winter weather fatalities and you have a significant threat.

Threats, such as hypothermia and frostbite, can lead to loss of fingers and toes or cause permanent kidney, pancreas and liver injury and even death.  You must prepare properly to avoid these extreme dangers.  You also need to know what to do if you see symtoms of these threats.

A major winter storm can last for several days and be accompanied by high winds, freezing rain or sleet, heavy snowfall and cold temperatures.

People can become trapped at home or in a car, without utilities or other assistance.

Attempting to walk for help in a winter storm can be a deadly decision.

The aftermath of a winter storm can have an impact on a community or region for days, weeks, or even months.

Extremely cold temperatures, heavy snow and coastal flooding can cause hazardous conditions and hidden problems.
