If you have a medical condition or if you have a job where you are required to get to town every day, please plan for unexpected bad weather. All roads can become impassable with extreme weather and it is important to have food and supplies to last for several days during a bad storm.
Rural residents should also have an emergency plan in place as any road can become impassable in extreme weather. It is important to have enough food, supplies and medications on hand to last for several days should you be snowed in. Should travel be required – for work or medical reasons – it is up to residents to make sure you have the right vehicle, like a 4x4, that will get you to where you need to go – or have a family member or neighbor lined up that does.
