Safety Update
Washington County Sheriff's Office

Earlier this season when a snowstorm pummeled the region, some Washington County residents may have learned the hard way how important it is to be prepared in case of an emergency. Fortunately, based on data collected by Washington County Public Health last June, most residents were probably at least somewhat prepared. Come see the new ground-breaking data on how prepared residents are in Washington County, and have fun learning how you and those you love can become more prepared.
