With the impending cold weather expected to hit the Corpus Christi area over the weekend, we urge our citizens to take precautions and have safety measures in place.

Check trusted sources for information or updates often.

Slow down when traveling on roadways, especially on overpasses and bridges.

Bring your pets inside.

Minimize outdoor activities for your family and pets.

Prepare for possible power outages.

Place flashlights in a common area so if you lose power you know where they are.

When utilizing alternate heating sources, such as an emergency generator, your fireplace, or space heater; take necessary safety precautions.

Test smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.

If you do not have to travel, please stay home.
