Cold Weather Precautions

Oakland County is experiencing a rush of intense cold weather this week. While our offices are open for business, we advise residents to stay indoors if possible, and to take extra caution when on the roads.

As temperatures drop, heat leaves your body quickly, which can result in hypothermia or frostbite. Both conditions can be life threatening. If you are in need of a shelter or warming station during this cold weather, please visit our website (HERE) for more information, including shelter locations and contact information.

And as a friendly reminder from the Oakland County Animal Control & Pet Adoption Center, don’t leave your pets outdoors for extended periods of time. A safe rule of thumb– if it’s too cold for you, it’s too cold for your pets!

For more information on how to stay warm, visit the Oakland County Health Division‘s website at www.oakgov.com/Health.
