Storm After-effects in Castle Rock?
Frostbitten in Castle Rock?
SERVPRO® of Denver West responds to storm damage emergencies frequently in the Denver and Castle Rock areas during the winter months and offers these winter weather tips from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for staying healthy after a severe weather event happens:
- Frostbite causes loss of feeling and color around the face, fingers, and toes.
- Signs: Numbness, white or grayish-yellow skin, and firm or waxy skin.
- Actions: Go to a warm room. Soak in warm water. Use body heat to warm. Do not massage or use a heating pad.
- Hypothermia is an unusually low body temperature. A temperature below 95 degrees is an emergency.
- Signs: Shivering, exhaustion, confusion, fumbling hands, memory loss, slurred speech, and drowsiness.
- Actions: Go to a warm room. Warm the center of the body first—chest, neck, head, and groin. Keep dry and wrapped up in warm blankets, including the head and neck.
- Call 911 if you need immediate attention. The threat of a winter storm can add additional stress. Follow CDC guidance for managing stress during a traumatic event and managing stress during COVID-19.
