Wintery Mix Coming to Washington! Be Careful Everyone. We’ll keep our light shining!

 

With snow, sleet and freezing rain in the forecast for Sunday, County officials and all of us at LightHouse Healthcare

 remind everyone that cold, wet winter weather can bring

treacherous roadways, sidewalks and parking lots. There are precautions

you can take to stay safe:

Remember the phrase:

Get where you need to go before the weather gets bad.

 If roads are icy, do not travel unless absolutely necessary.

 Use extreme caution when driving. You may not be able to stop as

quickly as usual on the snow-covered or wet pavement.

 If sidewalks are icy, take short steps and bend slightly.

 If you fall, avoid using your arms to protect against breaks.

This is also a good time to take a few minutes to make sure you have

everything you need to be ready for wintry weather.

 Get a kit. Imagine that you can’t leave your home for three days.  You

need basic emergency supplies.

 Make a plan. Everyone needs an emergency plan. It’s not hard to do.

 Stay informed. Sign up for alerts from your county including emergency

information, news releases, traffic information, and more through:
