How to Prepare for a Winter Storm

Prepare for a snow storm.Thankfully we have had a decent winter in southeast Wisconsin with only 2 notable snowfalls. This weekend the east coast got pounded with some areas receiving over 40 inches of snow. We should be prepared for the worst as we may not have time to prepare when the impact is imminent. Also, many people will be trying to fulfill their needs last minute causing delays and often making the essentials hard to find. The following is several steps you should take to ensure you are prepared before the risk is present.

  • Have an Emergency kit for all seasons and ensure for winter add the following supplies to your emergency kit:
    • Products to melt ice on walkways. Such as rock salt or similar
    • Sand will improve traction in areas
    • Snow removal equipment
    • Flashlights
    • Batteries
    • Cell phone charges
    • Clothing and blankets to keep you warm in the event of power loss
    • Books, playing cards or board games to pass time
    • Camping stove to boil water of cook if power is lost
    • First Aid kit
    • Matches
  • Have a plan to communicate and stay in touch with family
  • Own a Weather Radio to receive broadcasts alerts and warnings directly from the NWS for all hazards
  • Change cell phones and conserve batteries
  • Ensure all smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms are in good working order with fresh batteries. Blowing and drifting snow can block or occlude exhaust vents causing a buildup of carbon monoxide
  • Minimize travel. If travel is necessary, keep a disaster supplies kit in your vehicle
    • Clothes and blankets including extra hats, gloves and socks
    • Folding shovel
    • Windshield scraper and small broom
    • Water and food
    • Any necessary medications
    • Flashlight
    • Battery powered radio
    • Extra batteries
    • Matches
    • First aid kit with pocket knife
    • Tow chain or rope
    • Road salt and sand
    • Booster cables
    • Emergency flares
    • Fluorescent distress flag
  • Bring animals inside during winter weather if applicable. Ensure other animals or livestock have sheltered areas and non-frozen drinking water
  • Keep current on weather and conditions
  • Have apps for your smartphone that can be valuable resources and can be available from FEMA and the American Red Cross. These apps will have information about finding shelters, providing first aid, and seeking assistance for recovery
