The National Weather Service (NWS) and the Texas Division of Emergency Management have designated November 14th, 2012, as Winter Weather Awareness Day in Texas. This is an annual safety campaign designed to promote winter weather awareness and safety.

Every year, West Texas is affected by winter weather, with at least one winter storm impacting the area in a typical year. Across the United States, an average of 23 fatalities can be attributed each year to winter weather, and dozens of fatalities can be attributed to exposure to cold. Add to that number, vehicle accidents and fatalities, fires due to dangerous use of heaters, and other winter weather fatalities, and you have a significant threat.

The keys to avoiding serious injury or death during a major winter storm include knowing the safety rules to survive cold weather, knowing how to stay informed of forecasts and warnings for winter storm conditions, and preparing ahead of time to handle difficult travel conditions and other exposure to harsh cold weather conditions.
