Cold weather safety

Cold weather can be dangerous. Cold weather shelters are available in Snohomish County for people to have a safe place to go when temperatures drop below 32-34 degrees. Find shelter information by calling 211 or visiting the cold weather shelter webpage.

Other winter safety tips to keep in mind: 

  • Wear layers of lightweight, warm clothing if you are outside, and be sure to cover your head and hands with a hat and gloves or mittens. 
  • Bring pets inside when it is cold outside.
  • Make sure your home has a working carbon monoxide detector. Never run a generator indoors or use a gas stove to heat your home.
  • Prepare for winter storm-related issues such as heavy snow, flooding or power outages. Have a supply of nonperishable, sealed food and drinking water for your household, as well as other emergency essentials: an adequate supply of necessary medications, flashlights and batteries, and blankets and warm clothing for heat.
