 As Snohomish County wrestles with winter storms, we wanted to provide you with some safety tips and resources. 


Check Commute Routes Before Traveling on Roadways

 

Report Power Outages to PUD

  • Report a power outage (or check to see when power will be restored) by calling the Snohomish County Public Utility District (PUD) at 425-783-1001 or online: reportoutage.snopud.com

 

Phone Numbers for Emergency Services

  • For emergencies where there is an immediate threat to life or property, call 911
  • All other emergencies, call 425-407-3999
  • For health and human services needs, including cold weather shelters, call 211

 

Safety Tips

  • Do not use smokers, charcoal grills or propane grills inside in any enclosed space, including your home, apartment or garage.
  • Plan to stay home and avoid driving if possible.
  • Make sure cell phones are fully charged before the storm arrives.
  • Check on elderly neighbors and those with special needs.
  • Provide warm shelter for pets.
  • Do not walk on frozen bodies of water. Only the surface layer is frozen and it is too thin to walk on.

Avoid sledding on or near public roadways.
