Protect Your Family Pets in the Harsh Winter Weather - Community Advisory

Winter is a time we should pay close attention to the safety of our family pets. Here are some tips:

If your family pet goes outdoors, be aware of the temperature. Pets can get frostbite very easily on the ears, tail and paws.

When walking your dog, check the paws to make sure that ice is not building up between the toes and that salt from the road is not irritating the skin.

Wind Chill Warning - Community Advisory

The National Weather Service has issued a WIND CHILL ADVISORY for Montgomery County until 9:00 am Friday. High winds combined with below freezing temperatures are expected to drive the wind chill temperatures to below -5F. In these temperatures, exposed skin will freeze within 5 minutes.
