Travel Tips

  • Have multiple ways of getting severe weather alerts and follow the forecast closely for updates if severe weather is in the forecast.

  • Keep your cell phone charged and know how to call for help.

  • Have an emergency kit and plan.  Check Missouri’s Ready in 3 page for details about how much water should have, along with food, flashlights, batteries, prescription medications and a First Aid Kit.

  • Have games, books and videos to keep children occupied and be patient since you may encounter traffic and crowds.

  • If you See Something, Say Something! Report suspicious activity to local law enforcement and in case of an emergency call 911. On the highway, you can reach the Missouri State Highway Patrol at *55.
