If you are in one of the areas hit by massive winter storms, you should understand why it is important to be prepared for them.

It is best if you can stay home when there is severe winter weather. Even so, heavy snow can knock out power lines. Make sure you have plenty of freeze dried food stored as well as water. Also have emergency lighting and plenty of blankets and a safe way to keep warm.

If you must go out, make sure to have food, water, blankets and a survival kit in your car. Don’t forget a shovel! You never know when you might get stuck in the snow and will need to dig out. You can get more winter safety tips from the American Red Cross.
