Severe Weather & Winter Safety

Winter Preparedness Supplies: Are you Ready? Preparing for Winter and the Severe Weather of the season is not easy. However, it is something we should all have in mind. We’ve each been in some sort of a severe weather catastrophe - whether it’s dangerous low temperature, or heavy rain and snow (which, as you may know, can last for a few days or even weeks!) Stocking for winter can now be easier. You will be prepared with our economical Road First Aid Kits, Warmers, Shovels, Ponchos and Emergency Blankets and Shelter. Make the most of winter by having these helpful winter supplies ready nearby.

Severe Winter Weather Gear: From Blizzards to Blackouts we've got you covered.

Immediately on the heels of winter storm Iras battering the USA... freezing States from California to Maine and dumping snow in the Rockies, Jupiter blasted the Midwest with Ice Storms… then Leo & Jonas… Rains flooding the West, Nor'easter hitting hard with rain, coastal flooding, damaging winds, snow, ice - What’s next? Tornadoes? Flooding in the South? This winter promises a wide range of weather phenomena unlike any we have seen in recent times.

From California to Kalamazoo, from Portland to Portland (That can be a long distance - there are 14 cities named Portland in the US, with two being separated by 3,186 miles!) we have what you need to weather your own type of winter storms.

First and foremost remember that blackouts are the most common type of emergency. Think about it - almost any other type of emergency will cause downed power lines or other damage that will interrupt power supply to businesses and homes. Plan for this wherever you may be. Have emergency lighting and heating ready. Be prepared with battery, dynamo/crank, or solar powered communication devices (don't plan on that cell phone being your pal in a disaster - it could work great providing Wireless Emergency Alerts and Updates, or the cell towers could be down and it will be useless whether charged up or not!)

Seasons come and go, but weather preparedness is needed year-round! You may need a swimsuit and sunscreen in the summer, but what do you need for those cold winter days and nights? The winter season seems to be most unpredictable when it comes to its weather – being prepared for the unexpected is key, so that you don’t find yourself in the midst of a storm without the supplies to get you through it! We have everything you may need to equip yourself for the winter season and the severe weather it might bring with it – from simple ponchos and cold medicine, to flashlights and candles for power outages, and even emergency food and water as well as search and rescue kits for the more devastating natural disasters that leave people stranded.

Make your own personal disaster preparedness checklist with everything from food and water to sleeping gear and a change of clothes - remember any special needs such as medications, baby or pet supplies, and feminine hygiene. Our needs continue even when our normal resources draw to an abrupt halt. Start building your Winter preparedness stockpile now so you’re ready for the upcoming season... We’ve got what you need in an event of severe weather here!

Severe Winter Readiness! Get Your Gear On! From Blizzards to Blackouts; We've got you covered!

Winter - the deceptive killer

WRN-AmbassadorAs cold slowly seeps into your bones, so does a winter storm sneak up to wreak havoc.

While whiteouts, blizzards, and ice storms are obvious threats, the dangerously low temperatures, long snowfalls, and rains may not appear as deadly as they can be.

As Weather Ready Ambassadors, we remind you that the National Weather Service refers to winter storms as the “Deceptive Killers” because most deaths are indirectly related to the storm. Instead, people die in traffic accidents on icy roads and of hypothermia from prolonged exposure to cold. It is important to be prepared for winter weather before it strikes.

While the winter weather danger varies across the country, in this El Niño year (El Niño is the warm water around the equator. This warm water is what causes storms in the Pacific, El Niño is not the storms themselves) nearly all Americans, regardless of where they live, are likely to face some type of severe winter weather. Many winter storms - whether cold / freezing rain, sleet, ice, or snow - are accompanied by dangerously low temperatures. Be safe this winter by having helpful winter supplies ready. We’ve got what you need in an event of severe weather here! We have everything you may need to equip yourself for the winter season, avoiding cold stress and cold injuries, as well as the severe weather this winter season may bring with it – from simple ponchos and cold medicine, to flashlights and candles for power outages, and even emergency food and water as well as search and rescue kits for the more devastating natural disasters that leave people stranded.
