Cosumnes Fire Department officials want everyone to be prepared for cold weather temperatures. Residents are encouraged to initiate their own preparedness measures in anticipation of freezing temperatures and the possibility of power outages in some areas.
If you think you have frostbite or hypothermia, you should call 911 as they are potentially life threatening medical conditions. Don’t eat or drink anything containing caffeine or alcohol – they worsen the symptoms.
