National Weather Service Launches Winter Safety Campaign

With freezing temperatures this week, the National Weather Service is urging people to get ready for winter. When it comes to cold weather, always remember to protect the four Ps: people, plants, pipes, and pets.

Meanwhile, Tucson officials are urging you to be prepared for an emergency, such as a multi-day power outage or an interruption in utilities. Be Prepared Tucson advises all residents to create a 72-hour emergency kit. Each member of your family, including pets, should have a kit. A website from the City of Tucson, U.S. Department of Energy, Homeland Security, and FEMA has a checklist of everything you need to be ready for an emergency.
