COLD WEATHER MESSAGES FROM ALLIED WASTE & INFO ON EMERGENCY SHELTERS OPENING
February 22, 2011



(MONROE, WA) -- Following is an advisory from Allied waste about pick ups of garbage etc., in the Sky Valley and Snoqualmie areas as well as information about cold weather shelters opening and cold weather tips.

FROM ALLIED WASTE:

Sky Valley (East Snohomish County)
Some snow and ice in the outlying areas of eastern Snohomish County may cause garbage collection to be delayed by one week. You may place double the amount out for collection at no extra charge.

Snoqualmie
Four inches of snow hit Snoqualmie overnight. Plows are out and may make it possible for Allied Waste Services to collect most areas. Due to safety, there may be some neighborhoods that Allied will be unable to service. If your garbage is not collected by 5:30 pm tonight, remove your carts from the curb and, next week, you may place double the amount out for collection at no extra charge.

Red Cross Safety Tips for the Cold and Icy Weather

Exposure to cold can cause injury or serious illness such as frostbite or hypothermia. The likelihood of injury or illness depends on factors such as physical activity, clothing, wind, humidity, working and living conditions, and a person's age and state of health. The American Red Cross offers these tips to stay safe in the cold weather and possible snow that is predicted for this week:

·      Prepare your vehicle. Winterize your car by taking it to a trusted mechanic, who will check things like the tires for appropriate pressure and tread, the cooling system, the battery, the wiper blades and washer fluid, etc.

·      During the winter months, make sure to keep your gas tank near full to avoid ice in the tank and fuel lines. Keep extra blankets in the trunk in the event that you are stranded and have to wait for help.

·      Keep a winter storm survival kit in your car. This should include blankets, food, flares, chains, gloves and first aid supplies.

·      Dress appropriately before going outdoors. The air temperature does not have to be below freezing for someone to experience cold emergencies such as hypothermia and frostbite. Wind speed can create dangerously cold conditions even when the temperature is not that low.

·      If possible, avoid being outside in the coldest part of the day, or for extended periods of time in extreme cold weather.
·      Dress in layers so you can adjust to changing conditions. Avoid overdressing or overexertion that can lead to illness.
·      Most of your body heat is lost through your head so wear a hat, preferably one that covers your ears.
·      Mittens provide more warmth to your hands than gloves.

·      Wear waterproof, insulated boots to help avoid hypothermia or frostbite by keeping your feet warm and dry and to maintain your footing in ice and snow.

·      Take frequent breaks and stay hydrated.

·      Get out of wet clothes immediately and warm the core body temperature with a blanket or warm fluids like hot cider or soup. Avoid drinking caffeine or alcohol if you expect you or someone you are trying to help has hypothermia or frostbite.
