Prepare Now for Winter Temperatures and Travel

While colder temperatures come as no surprise for December in the Basin, the lack of preparation by some does. Common sense and preparing for conditions could make or break your day if a problem comes up with your vehicle. “Please be prepared when you go out,” shares Uintah County Sheriff’s Sgt. Brian Fletcher. “Make sure and have your phone charged, extra blankets in your vehicle and ensure that vehicles are prepared for the extreme cold.” While the first big snow has yet to hit, moisture can still stick and be icy in the night and early morning hours. “Please just be prepared for winter,” says Sgt. Fletcher. “Always keep items in your vehicle to keep you warm for a few hours if something were to happen.”
