Storm Damage Be Prepared for Winter Storms! Be prepared for winter weather.

Winter is approaching the Chicagoland area sooner than usual this year.  SERVPRO of Gold Coast / Lincoln Park / Lakeview want to help keep you safe in the event of a snowstorm.  Here are some tips form the American Red Cross to help keep you safe and get you ready for traveling in the cold weather:

  • Talk with your family about what to do if a winter storm watch or warning is issued.
  • Have your vehicle winterized before the winter storm season to decrease your chance of being stranded in cold weather.
  • Have a mechanic check your battery, antifreeze, wipers and windshield fluid, ignition system, thermostat, lights, flashing hazard lights, exhaust system, heater, brakes, defroster and oil.
  • Keep in your vehicle: a windshield scraper, small broom, matches in a waterproof container, an emergency supply kit, including warm clothing.
  • Keep your gas tank full so you can leave right away in an emergency.
  • Have a cell phone with you and make sure the battery is charged.
  • Pack a warm coat, gloves and a hat.

The Team at SERVPRO of Gold Coast / Lincoln Park / Lakeview wants you to arrive safe at your destination!
