Winter Weather Resources

As temperatures drop we should all take some time to prepare for inclement weather. I have pulled together a list of resources I find helpful in preparing for winter weather and staying safe. I especially encourage you to review the reccomended items for your emergency preparedness kits for home and your vehicle, as well as tips to keep your pets safe and healthy during the winter months. I have also found it helpful to print out emergency numbers to keep handy in the event of power outages. Finally, I would also suggest you to reach out to neighbors or family members who may need assistance in making preparations so we can all stay safe and comfortable through the winter!
