Weekly Report Washington County Sheriff's Office

 Winter and cold temperatures are upon us.  The Washington County Sheriff’s Office urges readers to make sure they are properly prepared for cold weather emergencies.  Households should be stocked with non-perishable foods, extra blankets, potable water, and alternative light sources.  Chimneys and stoves should be cleaned and properly maintained.  Extra batteries and first-aid kits should also be replenished.

If you have elderly or disabled relatives or neighbors, the Sheriff’s Office urges you to ensure that they are also properly equipped for the cold weather.  If you can regularly check on these neighbors and relatives, it will bring peace of mind to you both.
