North Carolina may not experience the harsh winters that other regions of the United States do; however, North Carolina is no stranger to severe winter ice storms.
The extreme cold temperatures of winter ice storms make staying warm and safe a challenge. Here is how to create a winter survival kit for your home to help you and your family survive the cold grasp of winter.
When creating a winter survival kit for your home, take into consideration factors that are specific to your home and family. For instance if your home is isolated or on the outskirts of a residential area, making it more difficult for help to reach you, make sure to stock additional amounts of food, water, and medicine. Listening to weather forecasts regularly can provide you with several days' notice to allow you to check emergency materials and to stock-up on essential supplies.
