Montgomery County has activated a Hypothermia Alert for extreme cold from 1am to 9am Mon., 11/20. Expect the wind chill to be below 32° it’s suggested to Wear layers if you go outside.
A Hypothermia Alert is issued for the County when forecasted temperatures, and/or wind chill, in at least part of the County fall below 32 degrees creating a hazardous situation in which hypothermia and frostbite are likely. There is always particular concern for children, seniors, homeless individuals and animals during periods of extreme cold.
- Neighbors, friends or family members should check on the elderly, especially a senior living alone. Older people are particularly susceptible to hypothermia, even inside their homes and may need assistance.
- Children engaged in outdoor activities should be carefully monitored by a responsible adult
- Everyone spending time outside should dress appropriately to protect against the cold
- Montgomery County provides a variety of sheltering opportunities for the homeless. Call the police non-emergency line, 301-279-8000 if an individual appears to be in danger.
- Animals should not be left outside unattended. See more information about animal care below.
- Residents in need of a place to warm up can visit County facilities such as libraries or recreation centers, or ride a Ride On bus, during normal operating hours.
