Ahead of winter’s major weather events, officials at the Kansas Insurance Department have outlined preparedness tips for residents to protect themselves during future blizzards and other extreme weather events.
In addition to their insurance tips outlined in the slideshow above, Department officials advise drivers to keep emergency kits in their vehicles, especially for long trips. A good kit should include a first-aid kit, batteries, flashlights, drinking water, snacks, jumper cables, ice scrapers, tissues and towels, a tow rope, extra clothing and blankets.
State officials also recommend checking in on family members ahead of dangerous winter weather events, and reassessing your immediate family’s insurance needs. Make sure that important insurance and legal papers are in a secure place that more than one person knows about. Assess personal insurance needs for yourself and your family. Needs for an older adult, for example, could be much different from those of a child or grandchild.
The Department has specifically offered five important auto insurance tips outlined in the slideshow above for drivers to consider as they prepare for dangerous winter road conditions. For more from the Department, visit their website.
