With low temperatures it is important to watch for signs of hypothermia and frostbite. For more information on the warning signs of hypothermia and frostbite please follow this link to the State of Michigan.
If you know or see someone out in the cold, please contact 911 or the non-emergency police phone line at (734) 722-9600. Our emergency personnel will work diligently to ensure they are taken to a safe place to stay warm.
Pets should also be considered with the colder weather.
