2021 Winter Hazard Awareness
Winter is an amazing time of year to enjoy the outdoors and together, we can plan for the not so great parts of winter to minimize our risks. Please make sure you have a survival kit in your vehicle. The items you need are shown below. Remember to monitor weather and road conditions before heading out, and if you're taking a long trip by yourself, let someone know where you're going and when you plan to arrive. If you can afford one, a generator is a great investment. If the power goes out, you'll stay warm and have all the comforts of home available to you. Our elderly neighbors and those with difficulties moving about, could sure use a hand with clearing their sidewalks and front porches, so this winter lend a hand if you can. 
On the right side of this page, you will find helpful tip sheets on many aspects of winter hazard awareness.
