As the first major storm hit Timmins this week, Police are reminding drivers and pedestrians to plan for the weather. They say to plan your route, be aware of all road conditions, and leave extra space around other cars. They also say drivers should keep an emergency kit in their car. Pedestrians should make sure cars can see them before crossing intersections.

What should you have in your emergency kit?

– A small shovel
– Extra winter clothing
– Candles
– Matches
– A lighter
– A flashlight
– A first aid kit
– A tow rope
– Roadside flares
