Winter Weather Awareness Week: Safety Kit Tips for Alabamians
The National Weather Service in Birmingham is hosting “Winter Weather Awareness Week.” Each day they will focus on a topic that can help you and your family during this season.
Got a safety kit?
How about a winter kit for your car?
“Make sure you’re prepared at home AND on the road before a winter storm threatens,” said the National Weather Service in Birmingham.
Having an emergency supply kit for your car is important because “you never know when you will encounter winter weather or an emergency road closure.”
Remember the crippling winter storm in January of 2014 that lead to many people being stranded across Alabama roadways.
