Preparedness week a reminder to assemble winter emergency kits - The Daily Telegram

Although weather prediction centers have issued a prediction for a warmer and drier than normal winter, temperatures are forecasted to drop and snow is possible over the next several days.

This week is Winter Hazards Awareness Week, and state, national and local authorities report now is a good time to

prepare for winter weather. In mid-October the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) released its predictions for the 2018-19 winter season, predicting an overall warmer, drier winter for the Upper Midwest.

But that does not mean Lenawee County won’t see its share of snow and ice storms and school cancelations.

“Winter is well on its way here in Michigan and now is the time to prepare,” Capt. Emmitt McGowan, deputy state director of emergency management and homeland security and commander of the Michigan State Police’s emergency management and homeland security division, said in a statement. “By taking a few extra steps, you will ensure that you and your

family are ready before winter weather strikes.”

Lenawee County Emergency Management Coordinator Craig Tanis said Wednesday one way to stay safe during winter weather is to sign up for the Smart911

system, which inputs information into a database to help first responders during power outages and evacuations.

“Smart911 works well for everyone, especially for those with mobility or transportation needs, or those who have medical devices that are dependent

on electricity,” Tanis said of the application available at smart911.com.

With information detailing medical or mobility needs in Smart911, Tanis said, emergency management has the ability to track users and and get help to them quicker.

“We can prioritize assistance and help relocate them if needed,” he said.

According to emergency tips from the state police and federal government at www.mi.gov/miready or ready.gov/winter-weather, residents should assemble an emergency kit for their car. Items to include are:

— Jumper cables.

— Warm clothes and blankets.

— Bottled water and nonperishable snacks.

— A spare cellphone charger.

— A first aid kit.

— A battery- or hand-crank-powered radio, emergency lighting or flashlights and extra batteries.

— A shovel and an ice scraper.

Residents should also have essential items — from medication to food and supplies for pets — ready at home in the event of a power loss.

Severe winter weather poses health and safety concerns with cold temperatures, freezing pipes, potential propane shortages and power outages. Residents should weatherproof their homes by installing weather stripping and caulking and insulating walls, doors and windows. Heating units should be inspected and cleaned, and backup heating plans should be put into place.

A battery-operated carbon monoxide detector near sleeping areas can help prevent deaths due to buildup of the deadly gas due to poor ventilation or leaks.

Getting ready for the first snow of the season - WILX-TV

With that, the Ingham County Road Department isn't taking any shortcuts.

"Well, certainly we want folks to get where they're going without any problems and to get there safely. That's our goal," Bill Conklin of the road department said.

With several tons of salt, the Ingham County Road Department will be patrolling the roads, while most people are still sleeping.

"We're going to have staff out about four in the morning to be checking on conditions. More heavily traveled intersections, bridge decks, to see if anything is tightening down," Conklin added.

The salt trucks are ready to go and will head out as needed. Michigan State Police say they are also ready because they know winter weather means more crashes.

"Its just people going too fast for conditions. Vehicles handling capabilities are severely diminished because of inclement weather. The driver is then responsible for operating their vehicles at a safe enough speed to be able to drive," Lt. Darren Green said.

State police say leave earlier, drive slow, and leave more space between cars when on the road.

"Its paramount. Not only are you putting yourself in danger and the people that are driving inside your vehicle, but if you spin out because you're going too fast for conditions, you could cause a huge pile-up behind you," Lt. Green added.

State police say you should also include an emergency kit in your car, in case you do get stranded. Things you should include in your kit are:

-Extra hats, gloves, scarves
-Flashlight with extra batteries
-Emergency flares
-First-aid kit
-Jumper cables

Snow is expected to hit overnight and into tomorrow morning.

Winter Weather Tips: Put Together Emergency Kit for Snowy Travel Conditions - NBC Chicago

With the first snowfall of the season heading toward the Chicago area, authorities are offering tips to drivers to stay safe as wintry weather arrives.

The Cook County Department of Transportation and Highways released a statement Thursday saying that they are ready to deal with the wintry conditions that are expected to impact the region over the next 24 hours.

Up to an inch of snow is expected in some places, and other areas could see a wintry mix of rain and snow as the first winter event of the season.

The DoTH also recommends that motorists keep the following items in their cars:


Cell phone charger

Emergency flares

Extra hats, socks, and mittens

First aid kit

Flashlight, with extra batteries

Flourescent distress flag and whistle

Jumper cables

Matches and small candles

Pocket knife

Road salt, sand, or cat litter for tire traction


Snack food

Tow chain or rope


Windshield scraper and broom

The department also recommends that motorists store the items in the passenger compartment of their cars, in case their trunk gets jammed or is frozen shut.

If you find yourself stranded during a snowstorm, it is recommended that you stay with your car. Walking in wintry conditions is very hazardous, the department says, and you have better odds of being helped if you stay with your vehicle.

If you end up stuck, only run your car engine for 10 minutes every hour to help save fuel, power, and to help prevent carbon monoxide poisoning. Keep the area clear around your exhaust pipe to prevent fumes from getting into the vehicle.
