Winter Weather Preparedness Week

Community

Winter Weather Preparedness Week is Nov. 27 – Dec. 1

(Cleveland) –White County, along with the Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency’s (GEMA/HS) Ready Georgia campaign, is encouraging citizens to take time to prepare for possible inclement weather emergencies this winter.

“Winter Weather Preparedness Week is a great time for White County residents and businesses to prepare for all potential winter hazards,” said David Murphy, Public Safety Director. “Since winter weather can be unpredictable, we’re hopeful these plans and education on potentially dangerous storms encourage residents to prepare for severe winter weather.”

Winter Weather Preparedness Week, from Nov. 27 – Dec. 1, was created to raise awareness of winter weather hazards and reinforce understanding of winter weather terminology. Throughout the week, White County and Ready Georgia encourages all Georgians to prepare for severe weather and restock necessary supplies.

Each day concentrates on different aspects of severe winter weather and provides critical information for preparedness. The focus for each day is as follows:

Monday, Nov. 27: Winter Weather in Georgia — learn about winter weather hazards that can impact the state of Georgia

Tuesday, Nov. 28: Winter Weather Terminology — learn about winter weather alerts (watches, warnings and advisories) and what they mean

Wednesday, Nov. 29: Winter Weather Preparedness Tips — learn how to best prepare for winter weather events, and put together a Ready kit while making a plan before winter weather strikes

Thursday, Nov. 30: Winter Weather Driving Tips/Safety — learn best practices for driving (if necessary) in winter weather conditions and how to pack a mobile Ready kit

Friday, Dec. 1: Winter Weather Outlook for 2017-18 season

In addition to following the preparedness tips provided each day during Winter Weather Preparedness Week, citizens are encouraged to prepare themselves, as well as their families and pets, for inclement weather during the winter months by adhering to these tips:

  • Prepare a Ready kit of emergency supplies for your home. Include at least a three-day supply of nonperishable food and water, a flashlight with extra batteries, a NOAA Weather Radio, adequate clothing and blankets to keep you warm, as well as additional supplies for the unique needs of your family, such as medication or pet Ready kits.
  • Keep an extra Ready kit in the trunk of your car. In addition to the basic essentials listed above, consider adding a portable cell phone charger, ice scraper, extra blanket, sand for traction and jumper cables.
  • Create an emergency communications plan so family members will know who to contact if separated during a storm. Designate at least one out-of-town contact. Determine a way to let family and friends know you’re OK if the power goes out. Create a customized plan for your family using the Ready Georgia website or mobile app.
  • Make sure you have a way to stay informed about winter weather. Purchase a NOAA Weather Radio or other battery-operated radio to monitor changing winter weather conditions.
  • Winterize your vehicle and keep your gas tank at least half full to prevent your fuel line from freezing.
  • Winterize your home by placing weather stripping around doors and windows. During cold weather, allow faucets to drip and open cabinet doors to let heat reach uninsulated pipes under sinks and appliances near exterior walls.
  • Identify an alternate heat source, like a fireplace or wood-burning stove, and stock sufficient heating fuel or dry, seasoned wood. You may become isolated in your home and regular fuel sources may be cut off.

Families can visit the Ready Georgia website or download the free Ready Georgia mobile app to learn how to prepare for emergencies, create family communications plans and more. To learn about specific risks in your area, contact us at 706-865-9500.
