Governor Eric Holcomb has declared Nov. 7 – 13 Winter Weather Preparedness Week.
The Indiana Department of Homeland Security says now is the time—before bad weather hits—for Hoosiers to gather the tools and resources necessary to brave the cold this winter. Indiana notoriously has unpredictable weather and preparing now can help Hoosiers avoid dangerous situations, inconvenient delays and expensive repairs.
The Indiana Department of Homeland Security, state partners and first responders will team up to protect citizens from hazardous conditions this winter, but Hoosiers also must do their part. When Hoosiers follow emergency guidance and prepare for conditions, they are less likely to need assistance when resources are heavily taxed.
Hoosiers can learn how to protect themselves from winter weather online at Get Prepared: Winter Weather. This site has information about extreme cold weather, winter storms, vehicle safety as well as the regularly updated county travel status map and information from the Indiana Department of Transportation.
