Winter Preparedness Seminar

The Oregon Chapter of the American Red Cross will speak about winter preparedness on November 13th, 6:30-8pm, at the Milwaukie Center, 5440 SE Kellogg Dr. This is the next installment of talks as part of the Milwaukie Mayor’s Emergency Preparedness Speakers Series.

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
Winterizing cars
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
Feel free to invite others who may be interested!
