Wipers on = Lights on! 2017 #National #Severe #Weather #Preparedness

2017 National Severe Weather Preparedness week.

As we start to experience more rain (April showers) – we need to constantly remind people – IF YOUR WIPERS ARE ON, TURN YOUR HEADLIGHTS ON!

Can you identify which vehicle doesn’t have their headlights on? Kinda hard to spot huh?

Despite daytime on a gloomy day, I think people just forget to turn their headlights on.

Consider using this safety meme whenever it rains.

Trust me, it’s free.

Every state is different so check your state and local laws. Or just turn them on whenever you turn your windshield wipers on.

More free severe weather safety tips this week…

Snow in the streets? Be careful or else this could happen to your kids #OHWX

It’s 2014 National Severe Weather Awareness Week from March 2nd through March 8th.

Do you have snow shovels and snow removal equipment in your emergency preparedness kit?

Do you have adequate clothing and blankets to keep warm?

How are the batteries in your NOAA Weather Radio so you can get immediate updates from the National Weather Service (NWS)?

During severe weather, minimize your travel. If travel is necessary, always keep a disaster supplies kit in your vehicle.

Bring pets/companion animals inside during winter weather. Move other animals or livestock to sheltered areas with non-frozen drinking water.

Snow day? Do not let kids play for long periods of time. Most everyone should stay away from the roads during severe weather. A great demonstration of why you should stay indoors by Fox29’s Steve Keeley.
