Many parts of the country experienced a very mild fall. However, forecasters are predicting a very cold and snowy winter and if you live in areas that are prone to sub-zero temperatures and blizzards now is the time to start preparing. Waiting until mid-December to find safety and disaster supplies can be a mistake. Supply stores can run out of simple items including ice melt and snow shovels quickly and if they don’t have any backorders you may be caught without essential supplies.
At Survival Supply we want everyone to be prepared for winter so we offer a crash course of items every home should have before the weather turns for the worse.
- Snow shovels
- Ice melt
- Flashlights and extra batteries
- Warm blankets, thermal clothing
- Emergency food and purified drinking water
- First aid kits
- Vehicle safety kits
While you will want your home to be prepared it is also important to remember that you get stuck in bad weather while driving. Having a vehicle disaster kit can be a lifesaver if you find yourself stranded on a road when a blizzard strikes.
The hours waiting for rescue teams and plows to arrive can be very trying and if you don’t have essential supplies on hand you could be at risk for frostbite, hypothermia, dehydration and hunger. Prepare your home as well as your car for the worst and be ready for any winter conditions.
