You should always have an emergency kit packed for your family, but don’t forget about your pets! Make sure your emergency kit contains plenty of food and water for Fido, bowls for feeding, and a jacket and/or warm blanket in case you get stranded. #ResolveToBeReady #COSprepared

If exploring out in winter weather, make sure to wipe off pets’ paws after each walk. Ice, salt and chemicals can irritate pets’ skin. You don’t want them to lick any of that! Also remember to check for cracks in paw pads or redness between toes. #ResolveToBeReady #COSprepared

How do you survive Colorado weather? LAYERS! Layers are the key to being comfortable in Colorado all year long, but especially in the winter! So, stay safe in the cold by bundling up, staying dry and covering exposed skin. #ResolveToBeReady #COSprepared
