Whether it’s freezing rain or a full-blown blizzard, winter weather conditions always call for extra caution.

The New Mexico Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management is asking citizens to prepare for the first winter storm.

“I encourage each family in New Mexico to make a preparedness plan and prepare a supply kit for both the home and winter travel,” department director Tim Manning said. “The items are common, logical and necessary to survive regardless of the type of emergency.” (Farmington Daily Times)
