Thanksgiving Travel

Posted by Joshua Allmaras on November 21, 2014 at 2:30pm 0 Comments

From the 124th Fighter Wing Safety Staff:

Many of you will be hitting the road this weekend to travel home for Thanksgiving. Make sure you have a plan. 

When are you leaving? What are the road conditions? When are you planning to arrive at your destination? 

As you ponder this take a look at the attached travel information. This has websites for you to check travel conditions in our state and many surrounding states.

Ensure you let someone know the route you plan to take and when you plan to arrive. That cell phone in your hand just might not work, in the middle of a snow storm, for you to call the people waiting on the other end for you.

Make sure you pack an emergency kit in case you become stranded.

Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving [and safe travels] from the 124 FW Safety Staff…
