Prepare for the cold and snow

Sgt. Lucas Adler

Here is an update from the Madison College Public Safety Office: 

  • In Person/Absentee voting is currently taking place at the Protective Services building and the Goodman South Campus until October 30th. 
  • As the weather gets cooler and snow and ice once again become an issue, give yourself extra time to get to campus. 
  • Check the tread on your tires, they shouldn’t be any less than 2/32″.  If you place a penny into your tread, with Lincoln’s head facing down, the tread should cover the top of his head, if it does not you should consider replacing your tires.  Tires with low tread can be dangerous to drive on in snow and ice. 
  • Bring a blanket or extra cold weather clothing and a small shovel with you in case you are stuck for a period of time or need to dig yourself out. 
  • Never let your vehicle get under a half tank of gas so if you do get stuck somewhere for a period of time, you don’t run out.
