Are you Ready for Winter?

Are You Ready for Winter?
“Get an emergency kit in your car. It could save your life”

November 10-14, 2014 is Winter Awareness Week in Wisconsin. The annual campaign, sponsored by Wisconsin Emergency Management (WEM), its Ready Wisconsin preparedness program and NOAA’s National Weather Service (NWS), is to remind people to be prepared for winter conditions that could threaten their safety.

Now is the time to winterize your car and home, gather items for an emergency kit in your car, and make sure you have a NOAA Weather Radio with fresh batteries. Additional winter weather tips and how to put together a winter emergency kit are available at the Ready Wisconsin website. Residents also can sign up for a chance to win an emergency winter kit. 
In addition, there are numerous winter storm maps and a history of Wisconsin's winter weather produced by the National Weather Service.
