Extreme Heat Preparedness Information

Good afternoon, everyone. As we are all aware, we are entering into a period of extreme heat for the next few days, with temperatures peaking on Monday upwards to 111 based on my phone app. As a result, the ISO electrical grid has issued flex alerts advising people of the potential for rolling brown outs between the hours of 4 p.m. – 9 p.m. beginning today.

Please note the following:

Heat Illness Prevention:

  • Please avoid physical outdoor activities during high heat, from 1 p.m. – 6 p.m. Stay inside or in the shade to the degree possible; drink lots of water; avoid direct sun; and wear sunscreen, loose fitting clothing, and a wide brimmed hat if you are outside.
  • Know the symptoms of heat stress, heat exhaustion, and what to do; click here. Heat stroke can be fatal. Please be careful.

Places to Cool Down (highest temperatures will be Sunday – Tuesday):

  • Sunday: Bobbie Greenwood Pool: 1:30 – 5:30 p.m. FREE. All fees are waived.
  • Monday: Bobbie Greenwood Pool: 1:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. New hours. FREE. All fees are waived.
  • Tuesday: Winters Community Library: 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.
  • The pool and library are co-located at 708 Railroad.
  • PLEASE NOTE: For those who are thinking about taking a dip in Putah Creek, portions of the Creek have a very quick current and lots of tree roots that can entangle swimmers who are swept away. Do not enter areas of the creek you are not familiar with. Use the buddy system. Never swim alone. You swim at your own risk.

Rolling Brown Outs:

  • According to our PG&E liaison, brown outs may occur between 4 – 9 p.m. and most likely between 5 – 7 p.m. and will not last more than one hour. More info here.
  • To sign up for a flex alert, go to www.flexalert.org.
  • Please conserve power as much as possible to help avoid these black outs. www.flexalert.org. Big ones include turning up the thermostat to above 78, closing windows and blinds, using major appliances early in the morning, turn off unused appliances and lights.
  • Charge up phones, devices, etc before 4 p.m.

Portable Chargers for Medical Equipment

If anyone needs a portable charger for medical devices, please come by the City Hall Conference Room, Abbey Street entrance, between 3 – 4 p.m. on Thursday. Chargers will be signed out on a first come / first served basis for the heat wave and can be returned later next week. The chargers can be charged with a car or plugged in at home prior to an outage.

Please stay safe over the next the week; check in on elderly neighbors or those living alone or without A/C, and call 911 in the event of an emergency.

Our County Librarian has responded that the Winters Library will be open Sunday and Monday from 1 – 5 p.m. for additional cooling opportunities. Thank you, County staff!

Best, Kathleen
