Although Elsa said that "The cold never bothered me anyway," it sure is bothering all of us!
As this arctic cold front continues to hold our area hostage, we’d be remiss if we didn’t remind our residents of some cold weather safety tips both for at home and when you’re in the car. Temperatures are expected to plunge at the end of the week with Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights hitting the single digits. This type of cold could be deadly if you find yourself broken down. So make sure you’re prepared if you’re traveling this weekend. Here we go:
If you're out and about:
-Make sure your car has plenty of fuel
-Keep blankets in your vehicle
-Fully charge your phone
-Bring water and dry snacks in case you break down or get stuck in traffic
-Top off your washer fluid to keep windows clear of salt
-Tell friends and family your travel route and planned time of arrival—in the event you break down or crash, they can notify police
-Check your home heating fuel
-Check on elderly neighbors
-Limit outdoor activities, especially for children, the elderly, and pets
-Ears, nose, cheeks, fingers and toes are most susceptible to frostbite: Keep them covered
-Dress in layers
BRING YOUR PETS INSIDE! IF YOU’RE COLD, SO ARE THEY!
Be safe Township of Monroe!
