Iowa Winter Weather Awareness Day – November 5

November 5 is Iowa Winter Weather Awareness Day. While most dislike this topic, now is the time to prepare.

You can sign up for NIXLE, our emergency notification system, by going here: https://siouxcountysheriff.com/nixle-sign-up/

Take a few moments today to review your winter driving checklists: make sure your vehicle emergency kits are supplied, keep a shovel in your vehicle, add a windshield scraper, make sure your vehicles are in good working order for the cold weather and tires ready for driving on snow and ice.

Here’s a good document that’ll also help you further prepare for the season: https://www.weather.gov/dmx/wintersafety

The Sioux County Sheriff’s Office wants all motorists to drive safe this winter and plan now for quickly changing weather conditions.
