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.
