“Are you ready for Northwest storm season? Check out these tips”
- From Dr. Rachel Wood, Thurston County Health Officer:
“Winter is right around the corner, and local history tells us that bad weather – heavy rain, high winds, or even heavy snowfall — can bring consequences that impact our daily lives.
“As the days get shorter and colder, people start to look forward to hunkering down by the fire with hot chocolate and a favorite movie. To stay safe this winter, however, we need to look forward in more ways than one. It’s important to prepare for local emergencies or power outages.”
“Regardless of your health needs, this is a great time to make sure you’re ready for another Northwest storm season. More information is available at www.ready.gov, where you can learn how to make a plan, and what resources you need to be safe in an emergency.”
