Routt office gives tips on winter preparedness
As part of Winter Weather Preparedness Week this week, the Routt County Office of Emergency Management is offering the following preparedness tips:
■ Ensure that you and your family members know about your surroundings and risk for specific weather. Stay informed by having multiple sources for weather alerts.
■ Have an emergency plan in place, and know what to do before severe weather strikes. Practice the plan with your family and post it in your home where visitors can see it.
■ As part of tailoring your plan, consider working with others to create networks of neighbors, relatives, friends and co-workers who will assist one another in an emergency. Discuss your needs and responsibilities and how people in the network can assist one another with communication, child care, pets or how to inform someone with a hearing loss about impending severe weather.
"Winter weather can strike quickly and abruptly. Pay attention to forecasts and heed warnings; don't take unnecessary trips during a winter storm. Make sure you have a 72-hour kit for your home and car, and realize that during large winter storms disrupted services can linger for 72 hours or longer," Routt County Office of Emergency Management Director Bob Struble said.
