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:
