The Illinois Emergency Management Agency is launching a winter storm preparedness sweepstakes.  IEMA Spokesperson Patti Thompson says they're giving away five emergency vehicle kits, stocked with a flashlight, weather radio, whistle, blanket, water, and non-perishable food items.  Thompson says these are the types of items people should have in their cars, just in case they get stranded in bad weather.  

Go to Winners will be announced next month.
