FROM WASHINGTON COUNTY EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT:Washington County continues to have wide spread power outages, about 3,500 citizens currently. The 911 center has been receiving numerous calls from fire companies inquiring about estimated restoration times and asking First Energy to prioritize certain outages. We have been in contact with First Energy throughout the event and they ensure us that crews are working hard and around the clock to restore power. Priority is given to critical infrastructure, medical facilities, and the largest outages. Citizens who need to seek a warm place can use public facilities during the day, such as a library or the mall. As we did last night, a shelter may be opened tonight if there is a need.
Again, please do not call the 911 center asking about restoration times or priority. The center reports pole numbers and issues to First Energy, the center is not First Energy’s customer service center. Thank you!CLICK THE BELOW MAP FOR INFORMATION REFERENCE OUTAGES AND ESTIMATED RESTORATION TIMES.http://outages.firstenergycorp.com/mdwv.html

Here are some helpful tips to avoid frozen pipes:Winterize your home! Be prepared!Did you know? You can reduce heating costs by insulating walls and attics. Plus, this simple addition can help protect your pipes from freezing thus preventing them from bursting. Also, keep your house heated to a minimum of 65 degrees while keeping cabinet doors open to allow heat to enter into spaces that contain pipes. This will help to protect vulnerable pipes, especially those that are along outside walls. Water that is moving is less likely to freeze. Allowing faucets to drip during periods of extreme cold can help to keep water moving and decrease the possibility of freezing and bursting.

Just before 0500hrs Company 13 and surrounding units were dispatched for the reported house fire on box 13-1. With initial units arriving and reporting a working fire, Washington County ECC dropped the Safety Assignment bringing Engine Co 2. Engine Tanker 2 with a crew of 5 under the direction of Lt Nokes responded on the run. Once on scene the crew from 2 was assigned to relieve the initial crews on division 1 and began the overhaul process. Initial fire attack crews located 2 victims inside the home. Victims were removed from the home but were pronounced on scene. During the investigation, the Md State fire marshals determined the house had no working smoke alarms. Company 2 operated for approximately 1 hr before returning to service.
