Are you ready for winter weather?

Snowplow at King County International Airport-Boeing Field

A snow plow keeps the runway clear at King County International Airport-Boeing Field during the February 2019 “Snowmageddon.”

Pacific Northwest winters can bring rain, wind and power outages, cold and icy roads, and sometimes, snow flurries or epic snowstorms. Are you ready for whatever Mother Nature has in store?

Winter weather preparedness includes three simple steps:

Build a kit. Create an emergency preparedness kit with at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food and water for your home, office and car.

Make a plan and practice the plan with your family and those who depend on you.

Stay informed. Pay attention to the forecast so you’re prepared. Know where to get more information and resources to prepare and cope.
