Winter Weather Advisories

  • DO NOT call 911 or non-emergency police numbers for road conditions. You can see real-time traffic cameras and weather hazards at
  • Prepare for winter weather. Shop for necessities well before the storm. Stock up now on flashlight batteries, flashlights, fireplace wood, candles (use safely), and portable cell-phone chargers. A portable AM/FM radio is also helpful.
  • During the bitter cold: Check on your neighbors, especially the elderly. Do not leave pets outside for very long. Make certain you have several days’ worth of medications. Consider purchasing a back-up generator (but never run generators indoors). Replace your smoke, CO detector, and garage-door-backup batteries.
