2012 Illinois Winter Weather Preparedness Guide

Illinois Emergency Management Agency

IEMA, National Weather Service Offer Illinois Winter Weather Preparedness Guide

While the winter of 2011-12 brought warmer temperatures and little snow, history shows that is more the exception than the rule for Illinois winters. Freezing temperatures, snow and ice are the norm for most winters in the state, and the Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA) and the National Weather Service (NWS) are encouraging people to begin preparing now for those hazards.

IEMA and the NWS are highlighting winter storm preparedness throughout November as part of their annual Winter Storm Preparedness campaign.

The 2012 Illinois Winter Weather Preparedness Guide is available to aid the public. The guide covers winter weather terms and tips for staying safe at home, in the car and at work or school. The guide is available on the Ready Illinois website at www.Ready.Illinois.gov or by calling (217) 785-9925. Here is the direct link:
