GET READY TO “FALL BACK” ON SUNDAY

October 31, 2011

Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday, November 6 at 2am.

As you set your clocks back an hour, Grays Harbor County Emergency Management is asking that all citizens become pro active in protecting your family from harm.

All households and businesses are being asked to:

1) CHANGE the batteries in their Smoke Detectors, Carbon Monoxide detectors and your All Hazard Weather Radios at the same time you change your clocks. Also, please test the alarm to make sure they work properly.
2) Check the status of any portable indoor heaters and remember to NEVER refuel indoors. If you use kerosene heaters, remember to leave a window open no less than 1” for ventilation.
3) Check the status of your generators.
4) Check or begin to assemble your “Go Kits” and 72 hour supplies in the event of a power outage. (see takewinterbystorm.org for more info)
5) In the event of severe weather or disaster, remember to check on your neighbors.
