Extreme cold and snowstorms can be dangerous, whether you're at home or on the road.

If you live in or are traveling to an area that is prone to severe winter weather, plan ahead with these tips from Ready.gov:

Keep an emergency kit in your car. Prepare for three days of self-sufficiency, including food, blankets, and tools like jumper cables and ice scrapers to support your car itself.
Prepare your home for cold weather. Check for proper insulation, learn how to turn off water valves if a pipe bursts, and keep space heaters on hand in case of a heat shutdown.
Be aware of cold-related medical emergencies. Hypothermia and frostbite can hit when you're exposed to sustained cold weather. Know the signs of these preventable conditions in both children and adults.
