La Niña – the buzz word in weather reports across the country – is likely to bring us one of the harshest winters in the last 50 years on the Washington coast.
With that in mind, it is imperative that we have the most updated information to contact you in case of an emergency. Please fill out the Seabrook Homeowners Emergency Contact Form as soon as possible! This will help us to promptly reach you in case of any kind of emergency. Once you fill out the form you can either email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or print it off and fax it to us at (360) 276-0095.
In preparation for the severity of this year’s winter conditions, Grays Harbor County’s Deputy Director of Emergency Management, Charles Wallace will hold a special meeting for Seabrook homeowners to help you better prepare your home for the winter. The meeting will be held at the Pacific Beach Fire Hall on November 13 at 10am. Apart from learning great information about weather emergencies at Seabrook, this meeting is also a great chance to meet some of your neighbors!
What: Seabrook Homeowners Meeting for Emergency Preparedness
When: November 13, time: 10-11 am
Where: Pacific Beach Fire Hall
What can you do in the meantime? Start off by following some of these initial guidelines:
1) CHANGE the batteries in your Smoke Detectors, Carbon Monoxide detectors, your AM/FM portable radios and your All Hazard Weather Radios at the same time you move your clocks back 1 hour. Also, please test the alarm to make sure they work properly.
2) Check the status of any portable indoor heaters and remember to NEVER refuel indoors. If you use kerosene heaters, remember to leave a window open no less than 1” for ventilation. If you or any family member begins to feel ill or is not acting in a normal manner, LEAVE THE PROPERTY IMMEDIATELY AND CALL 911! Carbon Monoxide is odorless and can cause death!
3) Check the status of your generators.
4) Check or begin to assemble your 72 hour supplies in the event of a power outage. You will need non perishable food and water for your family and pets, blankets, bedding, flashlights and the location of the closest shelter in the event you must leave your home.
5) In the event of severe weather or disaster, remember to check on your neighbors.
