Make sure smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are working

Bring pets and animals inside in extreme weather

For your car, be sure to carry:

Snowbrush and ice scraper

Flashlight, boots, extra gloves

Blanket or sleeping bag

Energy bars and drinking water

First-aid kit

Sand or kitty litter, and keep windshield washer fluid filled
