December is about Winter Storm Awareness

Winter is right around the corner, bringing the promise of snow and ice. Be prepared for potential risks associated with winter weather by having an emergency kit that provides useful items for comfort and security in the event of power loss and cold temperatures. Being prepared, monitoring reports about weather conditions and using common sense can minimize the danger to you and your family.
