Storms, high winds forecast this weekend; Shameless reprint of email resources list

From Seattle King County Public Health
Community Communication Network members,
Storms are forecast for this week with winds growing stronger. A significant windstorm is predicted for Thursday. High winds may lead to power outages. Please share information about preventing carbon monoxide in case the power goes out.
Here are some important messages and resources to share with your clients and community members:
Translated information in multiple languages from ECHO - Many refugee and immigrant communities may be less familiar with staying safe in cold weather (i.e. snow safety, fall prevention and preparedness information). Please refer to the information on the ECHO website, which includes audio, video and written translations in multiple languages that can be referenced and shared with staff and clients.
Carbon Monoxide - English and translated information and flyers
Carbon Monoxide – Video in Somali
Carbon Monoxide – Video in English
If power outages occur, find places where you can go to get warm. Friends and family may have power and warm homes you can visit. Updated shelter locations will be posted at http://resourcetalk.crisisclinic.org/winter-shelters-201415/. Please reference, in the event of power outages.
