Winter Storm Preparedness: Supplies

Emergency supplies you will need for a winter or ice storm are similar to supplies you will need in any emergency but there are some additional items. These include kitty litter or sand to keep sidewalks and steps clear of ice, a windshield scraper for the car, warm clothes and extra blankets.

Winterize your vehicle before a storm. Keep the gas tank full to prevent the fuel line from freezing. In a severe ice storm, lines may be down and power out for a week or more.

Here is a check list that will serve you well in emergencies:
