Mayor Jeremy Ferguson is hosting a series of presentations focusing on Emergency Preparedness. These events are free, and Milwaukie residents are invited and encouraged to attend to learn tips and strategies that will help them take care of themselves and those around them in the event of an emergency.
With winter quickly approaching, we thought it would be helpful to offer a seminar on preparing for winter weather and severe storms.
-Preparing your home (including insulation for pipes, windows, doors, etc.)
- Understanding TV/Radio weather warnings (Travelers Advisory, Winter Storm Watch, Winter Storm Warning)
-Making a plan with your family
-Conserving body heat
-Signs of hypothermia
-Maintaining heat within the home during a winter storm/power outage
-Driving in rain, snow, and ice
-Using safe sources of heat during a power outage
-Important disaster kit supplies for the winter
-Contacting power companies about outages
