Stay safe

Follow these tips from North Shore Emergency Management to stay safe during an extreme cold weather event:

  • Seek warm shelter immediately and listen or watch for updates on radio, TV and social media. Allow faucets to drip a little to avoid freezing.
  • If you go outdoors, dress appropriately. Wind chill can cause cooler temperatures to occur. Limit your time outside and watch for signs of frostbite or hypothermia.
  • Take care when shoveling. Vigorous exercise and cold temperatures can cause high blood pressure and accelerated heart rates. Be cautious when walking on icy streets.
  • Phone 911 if you see utility lines or poles down, see any sparks, flames or smoke.
