Snow is a lot like liver and onions. You either love it or hate it. But, if you find yourself stranded in your vehicle in the middle of a snow event, you can either hate the fact that you weren't prepared for it, or love that you are.
Mother nature can be a real beast. In fact, she's a killer. And when it comes to a snow storm event, the best idea for safety is to stay off the roads and keep warm and safe at home. However, that isn't always possible. When you find that you must venture out on snowy and icy roads, you know to stay alert, drive a little slower, brake according to road conditions... But what if your vehicle breaks down or gets stuck and you must wait for help in a disabled vehicle in dangerously cold, wet weather?
SERVPRO of West Forsyth County wants you to be prepared in the face of any hazard that may cross your path, whether flood, fire or treacherous travel conditions.
Please take a moment to look at the list (below) of suggested items to keep in an emergency go bag. Just a little bit of preparation can keep a little emergency from becoming a catastrophe.
Stay warm and carry on! And tune in to local radio to stay alert to the latest weather conditions.
