Officials: Call 2-1-1 to help people find shelter from cold and ice

Severe Weather Winter Shelters List Here

Outreach teams from King County and the City of Seattle are on patrol around downtown and parts of Capitol Hill to help people on the streets get out of the cold. You can help by dialing 2-1-1.

The King County Emergency Services Patrol, funded by the county and the city, is “operating 24/7 during the weekend to help people who are living on the streets in downtown Seattle” and “out meeting with people who are experiencing homelessness to encourage them to come inside during the winter storm.”

But you can also help out by calling 2-1-1 to let the outreach teams know about somebody who may need help.

You can also call 9-1-1 but reports from some callers say that the emergency dispatchers haven’t treated the shelter shuttle calls as priorities.

The county and the city have increased available shelters and warming facilities through the recent storms and into next week. A roster of severe weather shelters is here.

SPD: Back to School Youth Safety Tips: Metro, Sound Transit Safety & more..

Safety at School

Safety at school should be your number one priority.
Report all crimes and suspicious activities to school staff and police.
Always say no to things that make you uncomfortable.
If you see or receive information about a gun on school campus, get to safety and call 9-1-1 immediately.

Safety on Metro/Sound Transit Routes

Pay attention to your surroundings when walking to or from transit stops and on buses or trains.
Thieves on transit are on the lookout for cellphones, jewelry or other valuables.
If there is a problem on the bus or train, notify the driver and/or call 911.
Keep all personal belongings close by.
If you have concerns about safety at or near your stop, contact your driver or call 911.

Street Smarts

Know your transit routes.
If a person or group makes you feel uncomfortable, cross the street, walk in another direction, or ask other people you trust to walk with you.
Make eye contact with people around you carry yourself with confidence.

If you are Targeted in a Crime

If someone tries to grab you, make a scene. Scream, kick, fight . . . Depending on the situation, do what you feel is right to get away.
If someone demands your wallet or phone it’s always safer to hand it over than risk injury.
Seek help from a neighbor, business or bystander as quickly as you can and call 9-1-1.

NSA RELEASES MOST RECENT NALOXONE REPORT – ESTIMATES 175 LIVES SAVED

In November 2015, the National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA) partnered with Purdue Pharma L.P. (Purdue) to provide free-of-charge naloxone overdose kits and training to law enforcement agencies across the country. This “rescue drug” can reverse the fatal overdose effects of some opioids, including heroin. To date, NSA has trained more than 1,000 law enforcement officers and command staff to administer naloxone.

Furthermore, NSA has distributed 1,743 2-dose kits of naloxone (Narcan) aerosol (3,486 doses). Specifically, NSA has provided naloxone overdose kits to 39 law enforcement agencies covering 21 states, as outlined below. Finally, and most importantly, data collected in the project’s first 18 months document 120 lives saved. Now, 26 months into the project, we estimate that the NSA and Purdue partnership has saved more than 175 lives!
