Public Information Statement
National Weather Service Indianapolis IN
630 AM EST Sun Nov 12 2017

Governor Eric Holcomb has proclaimed November 12 through November 18
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. Media outlets 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 where
everyone plans for, prepares for, and responds to hazardous weather.
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 are issued
you review your plans. When 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

Monday...the NWS outlook for this winter, what is normal for winter
temperatures and precipitation and preparing for cold.

Tuesday...winter weather travel safety.

Wednesday...winter safety considerations for schools.

Thursday...emergency kits for preparedness.

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.
