Public Information Statement
National Weather Service Indianapolis IN
630 AM EST Sun Nov 13 2016

Governor Mike Pence has proclaimed November 13 through November 19 as
Winter Weather Preparedness Week in Indiana.

The National Weather Service, working with our partners, the State
Police, the Indiana Departments of Homeland Security, Transportation
and Education, and the Red Cross, will provide information on winter
weather safety. The media will continue their important role by
carrying messages in newspapers, on the radio, and on television.

The key to being safe during hazardous winter weather is
understanding your role in preserving your own safety. This ties to
the National Weather Service vision of a Weather-Ready Nation. All
Hoosiers need to be hazard ready. Winter Weather Preparedness Week
reviews safety planning for winter weather hazards.

Knowing winter weather terms and winter weather safety tips can
reduce weather related problems. Remember when watches and warnings
are issued, you need to take action to remain safe from the dangers
winter may bring.

The National Weather Service Indianapolis office will issue daily
Public Information Statements that will contain the following
information...

Monday...Emergency kits for preparedness.

Tuesday...Winter weather travel safety.

Wednesday...Winter safety considerations for schools.

Thursday...The outlook for winter and exposure to cold and wind
chill.

Friday...Outdoor safety during winter.

Saturday...Summarizing winter weather points for the week.

Winter weather information will be on NOAA radio broadcasts and on
National Weather Service websites.

safety.
