Winter Emergency Preparedness

Car emergency kit- booster cables, tools, reflective signs, blanket, rope, air pump

With Winter officially arriving yesterday, and the potential of a winter storm this week, it is always good to be prepared.

Environment Canada provides great forecasts warning of approaching systems. Download a weather application like WeatherCAN (link http://ow.ly/uz4b50CS65o) and check it before you travel.

If you have to drive, make sure your vehicle is in good operating order and install winter tires. Use full lighting systems and make sure your vehicle is clear of ice and snow. Dress warmly, carry a fully changed mobile phone and, prepare a vehicle emergency kit in case you are trapped in a traffic jam on the 401 or slide into a ditch.
