Keep you and your neighbors warm and safe during extreme low temperatures this evening

Posted on: January 6th, 2014 by lighthouseadmin
Our area is under a wind chill advisory from the National Weather Service beginning at 6 p.m. Monday until 6 p.m. Tuesday. The temperature and winds will make it feel like it’s 5 to 15 degrees below zero. Here’s what you can do to beat the freeze, and important Fairfax County contact information. 

If you can, stay indoors where it’s warm. If you must go outside, dress in several layers of lightweight clothing, coat, mittens/gloves, hat and shoes/boots. And be sure to bring pets/companion animals inside.

  • In case of snow or other wintry precipitation, be careful on walkways and roads, which can be dangerous despite appearances.

Residents are encouraged to check the operating hours to ensure the facility is open before arriving.

  • Residents who know individuals needing special attention are encouraged to take a few minutes to check in on them to ensure their well-being. If residents need immediate, life-saving help, call 9-1-1. For other safety help, call the public safety non-emergency phone number at 703-691-2131, TTY 711.
  • Residents who need immediate help with utility bills or other urgent human services assistance can call the county’s Coordinated Services Planning staff at 703-222-0880, TTY 711. County staff can connect residents with a network of services provided by public, private and community-based organizations, as well as appropriate county government resources.
