Prepare for Colder Weather

October 23, 2018 

With colder weather forecasted for our area, Wythe County would like you and your family to stay safe. Wythe County has already had and is still forecasted for temperatures below freezing along with precipitation. Here are some initial tips to get you and your family prepared for the colder weather.

• Plan ahead! Keep a stock of extra food, water, batteries, blankets, and medicines in case of power outages or the unexpected. Keep informed of changing weather from local media.

• Wear layers when outside doing activities and stay hydrated.

• Bring pets inside or provide adequate provisions to keep them warm. Keep them hydrated with plenty of fresh water (not frozen) when outside.

• Make sure your address is visible from the street to assist emergency responders in locating you during an emergency.

• Install, test, and maintain working smoke alarms in the home.

• Furnaces, fireplaces, and chimneys should be routinely cleaned and inspected. It is recommended to contract a qualified technician for repairs and maintenance.

• Turn off portable heaters when unattended, and keep pets and children at a safe distance from heating elements.

• Keep combustible materials at least 3’ from space heaters, furnaces, and fireplaces.

• Never use your oven or stove for heating purposes.

• Dispose of ashes in a metal container. Place the container outdoors, away from combustible materials or construction.

• Install and maintain carbon monoxide (CO) alarms to avoid the risk of CO poisoning. Carbon monoxide alarms are NOT a substitute for smoke alarms.

• Check in on neighbors, especially the elderly, to make sure everyone is safe.

 Let’s keep Wythe County safe and help each other. If you have an emergency call 911 for assistance. If you have any questions visit wytheco.org or email our office. Thank you and Stay Safe!

The waters from Michael are receding and the true damage from the storm is now showing. Roads have been washed out or damaged from moving water. VDOT is working hard to clear all debris and repair the damages that occurred. To find all the areas that VDOT is repairing, visit 511virginia.org or use the 511 app. If you come across an area that needs repair or VDOT’s attention, call 1-800-FOR-ROAD (1-800-367-7623). Please understand that these repairs may take time and VDOT is working hard to complete the repairs in a quick but safe manner.

Wythe County wants to thank its citizens for assisting in keeping everyone safe. Thanks to all the citizens that called neighbors or friends to check on them and make sure people were safe. It takes a community working together to keep everyone safe and it showed yesterday. We ask that you continue to do this as the weather changes over to cooler temperatures. Also, thank you to all the citizens who called in tips on issues in the county yesterday.

Moving forward, continue to be prepared. Visit wytheco.org to learn how to stay prepared year-round. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the more affected areas of the Commonwealth and across the Southeast United States. Thank you and Stay Safe!
