Winter is here and the cold, unpredictable weather can present many safety and driving challenges. Here are a few tips to help you get you through the season:

-Clear your car windows of ice and frost before driving.
-Beware of icy roads. Slow down and watch for other vehicles that may slide through an intersection.
-Check road conditions before you go (WSDOT for state highways or Public Works for county roads).
-Never leave a vehicle running in an enclosed area, such as a garage.
-Never leave a vehicle running unattended. 
-Do not walk out onto any frozen ponds, lakes, rivers or any other frozen water or waterways.
-Do not use gas ranges, ovens, grills, lanterns, hibachis or portable camping stoves to warm your home.  
-If you go out to explore or enjoy our beautiful backcountry, remember to dress appropriately, prepare for rapidly-changing conditions, bring the 10 essentials, and tell someone where you are going and when you expect to return.

Stay safe this winter, Snohomish County!
