PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE CHICAGO IL
900 AM CST FRI NOV 21 2014

...THIS IS WINTER WEATHER PREPAREDNESS WEEK...

WHEN A SNOW OR ICE STORM IS EXPECTED TO AFFECT ANY PART OF YOUR
TRAVEL ROUTE...HERE IS AN IMPORTANT QUESTION TO ASK YOURSELF: DO I
REALLY NEED TO MAKE THIS TRIP? IF THE ANSWER IS NO...THEN DONT GO.
KEEP IN MIND THAT THE WEATHER MAY BE OKAY IN YOUR TOWN...BUT
HAZARDOUS WINTER DRIVING CONDITIONS COULD EXIST ONLY A FEW MILES
AWAY.

IF YOU MUST TRAVEL OUT OF TOWN AND DANGEROUS WINTER WEATHER
CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED ALONG ANY PART OF YOUR ROUTE...MAKE SURE
YOUR GAS TANK IS FULL AND YOU HAVE A COMPLETE WINTER EMERGENCY KIT
IN YOUR VEHICLE BEFORE DEPARTING. BE SURE TO TELL YOUR FAMILY OR
FRIENDS WHERE YOU ARE GOING...THE ROADS YOU WILL BE TAKING...AND
YOUR TIME OF ARRIVAL.

DO NOT PANIC IF YOU BECOME STRANDED ON THE ROAD DURING A WINTER
STORM. CALL SOMEONE ON YOUR CELL PHONE AND LET THEM KNOW YOU ARE
STRANDED. DO NOT TRY TO WALK TO SAFETY; STAY IN YOUR VEHICLE. ATTACH
A CLOTH TO YOUR CAR ANTENNA OR WINDOW TO INDICATE YOU NEED HELP.
TURN ON THE DOME LIGHT AND FLASHERS TO MAKE YOUR VEHICLE MORE
NOTICEABLE.

THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION ALSO REMINDS YOU TO BE ON THE
LOOKOUT FOR SNOW PLOWS THIS WINTER. IF THE PLOW IS COMING TOWARD
YOU...ALLOW PLENTY OF ROOM FOR IT TO PASS. IF YOU APPROACH A
SNOWPLOW FROM THE REAR...PASS WITH CARE...AND ONLY WHEN YOU CAN SEE
THE ROAD AHEAD OF THE PLOW.

FOR MORE INFORMATION VISIT WWW.DOT.STATE.IL.US OR WWW.IN.GOV/INDOT
AND WWW.READY.GOV/WINTER-WEATHER.

NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE CHICAGO IL
900 AM CST THU NOV 20 2014

...THIS IS WINTER WEATHER PREPAREDNESS WEEK...

ANOTHER WINTER IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER...MAKE SURE TO FOLLOW THESE
TIPS FROM THE STATE FIRE MARSHAL AND YOUR LOCAL FIRE DEPARTMENT TO
MAKE YOUR WINTER FIRE SAFE.

IF YOU MUST USE A SPACE HEATER...PLACE SPACE HEATERS AT LEAST THREE
FEET AWAY FROM WALLS...FURNITURE...AND OTHER COMBUSTIBLE ITEMS. BE
SURE WIRING IS SUFFICIENT FOR OPERATING AN ELECTRICAL HEATER. USE
EXTENSION CORDS SPARINGLY...ESPECIALLY AROUND THE HOLIDAY SEASON.

INSTALL AND MAINTAIN YOUR SMOKE DETECTORS. A SMOKE DETECTOR THAT
DOES NOT HAVE A BATTERY WILL NOT WORK...AND IT WILL NOT SAVE YOUR
LIFE. A WORKING SMOKE DETECTOR IS YOUR FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE IN THE
EVENT OF A FIRE. REPLACE THE BATTERY AT LEAST TWICE EACH YEAR...AND
BE SURE TO TEST IT REGULARLY. THIS IS ALSO A GOOD TIME TO CHANGE THE
BACKUP BATTERY IN YOUR NOAA WEATHER RADIO.

IF YOU LOSE HEAT...NEVER LIGHT A GRILL OR WOOD BURNER IN YOUR HOME.
IF YOU HAVE A PORTABLE GENERATOR...MAKE SURE YOU FOLLOW ALL OF THE
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS AND ARE CERTAIN THAT IT IS PROPERLY VENTILATED
OUTDOORS TO AVOID CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING. INSTALL AND MAINTAIN A
CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTOR...AND MAKE SURE IT ALSO HAS A FRESH BATTERY.

MAKE SURE YOUR FURNACE AND FIREPLACE ARE INSPECTED AND MAINTAINED
EACH YEAR. CHANGE OR CLEAN THE FURNACE FILTERS AND SCHEDULE AN
INSPECTION BY A QUALIFIED HEATING SPECIALIST. HAVE A PROFESSIONAL
CHIMNEY SWEEP SERVICE CHECK THE CHIMNEY AND CLEAN THE FLUE.
