Are you ready for WINTER WEATHER?

Recent Virginia winters have been cold and snowy, and many people had power outages. It’s important to be winter-ready! No matter the predictions, a significant winter storm is always possible. An important part of winter weather planning is being prepared to stay where you are until conditions improve. To help you prepare, take these steps:

Get a kit. Basic emergency supplies include:

  • Three days’ food that doesn’t need refrigeration or electricity to prepare it
  • Three days’ water (a gallon per person per day)
  • A battery-powered and/or hand-crank radio with extra batteries
  • For businesses and offices, some bottles of water, food bars and a radio or TV to hear local information about whether or not it is safe to travel
  • A power pack for recharging cell phones and other mobile devices Learn More
