Kansas and Oklahoma- Well, it’s that time of season again! Freezing temperatures are forecasted across the Kansas and Oklahoma Region this weekend.

The Red Cross encourages people to take a few minutes to prepare for the conditions. So, here are a few quick tips and reminders for you:

“Preparedness builds resiliency within your home and your community, and it lessens the impact of a disaster on your household. So, please do what you can to stay prepared,” said Linda Medford, Regional Preparedness Programs Manager for the Red Cross of Kansas and Oklahoma. “Start small with a plan of action and a go bag, and build on it as you can.”

Stay warm this weekend and be safe.
