Winter Safety Tips from Tanana Chiefs Conference

Winter is upon us and with changing weather comes hazards

 There are safety tips to keep in mind before you venture out in rural Alaska.

  • Be Prepared- make sure you have a plan.
  • Tell someone where you’re going and the route you plan to take.
  • Always check weather conditions, try to bring a partner for long travel.
  • Slow down and avoid traveling across bodies of water when uncertain of the ice thickness.
  • With warmer temperatures it’s getting harder to predict the thickness and relative safety over rivers and lakes.
  • Finally, don’t drive impaired! We want you to get to your destination safely.
