Meteorologists are predicting a big snow storm this weekend so its important to know what to do if you somehow get caught in the snow.

Mesa County Search and Rescue is gearing up for winter. They receive an average of three rescues every winter of cars getting stuck in the snow.

Experts say checks your tires before you hit the road.
Make sure the tread is solid and your air pressure is up to par, it’s also important to keep a few essentials in you car, a blanket to keep warm, food and water, and a cell phone. Even If you don’t have a phone signal, dial 911 and the signal will bounce off towers, helping authorities to pinpoint your location.
