FEMA ready to help after Nemo
(Page 2 of 2)

FEMA has echoed the warnings issued by the National Weather Service and local elected officials in the affected region, and asks citizens and visitors in areas with severe winter storms to avoid all travel both during and immediately following the storm and to heed all advice and safety information provided by state, tribal and local emergency officials.

Individuals in areas affected by the storm, are reminded of these safety tips during the storm:
• Stay indoors during the storm.
• Walk carefully on snowy, icy walkways.
• Avoid overexertion when shoveling snow. If you must shovel snow, stretch before going outside.
• Keep dry. Change wet clothing frequently to prevent a loss of body heat.
• Use generators outdoors, away from doors, windows and vents.
• Check on your neighbors or friends nearby who may need assistance or extra support.

FEMA, Snow, Storm, Nemo,
