Worcester County Emergency Services Urges Residents to Prepare for Winter Storm
* Secure all loose objects that are stored outside your home
* Be prepared for possible power outages
* Check supplies of food, water, batteries, baby foods and medicines
* Check battery powered radios and continue to monitor weather forecasts
Hypothermia can occur quickly when exposed to low temperatures. Bundle up if headed outdoors during the storm. Wear layers of lightweight clothing that can be added to or removed as needed, and protect extremities by wearing gloves and hats. Be sure to protect pets from the cold as well by bringing them indoors and assuring they have access to unfrozen water.
