Be winter prepared:

As we prepare for storm conditions, we encourage you to do the same:

  • Make sure to have emergency supplies on hand at home and in your vehicle, such as extra batteries, flashlights, and food.

  • Have a battery-powered radio ready to go.

  • Charge cell phones and mobile devices in case the power goes out.

  • Avoid opening and closing refrigerators and freezers more often than necessary. A closed refrigerator will stay cold for up to 12 hours.

  • Stay warm. Choose a small room with few windows as your emergency living quarters.  Keep windows, drapes, and doors closed. Dress warmly.

  • Conserve water, especially in areas where well pumps and pumping stations may be without power.

  • Turn off lights and unplug all appliances and sensitive electronic equipment, such as computers, to prevent an overload on your circuits when electric service is restored. Leave one light on to let you know when service returns.

  • Puget Sound Energy: Download the myPSE app to track and report outages, check status, and get estimated restoration times, or visit com/outagemap. For additional information visit:

  • Snohomish PUD visit their Outages and Safety page at https://www.snopud.com/outages-safety/. To check the status or report an outage visit https://www.snopud.com/outages-safety/outage-center/

  • Safety first:

    • Never touch or go within 35 feet of downed power lines because they might be energized.

      • Puget Sound: Call PSE at 1-888-225-5773 or 911 to report problems.

      • Snohomish PUD: Call SnoPUD 425-783-1001 or 911 if it is life-threatening.

    • Do not use a charcoal or gas grill to cook indoors. Never use a natural gas range for heating, or charcoal as an indoor heating source. This can cause a buildup of poisonous carbon monoxide gas.

    • If you choose to use a portable home generator, read the manufacturer’s instructions for the safe operation of the generator. Do not operate generators indoors or in enclosed spaces to avoid the build-up of carbon monoxide.

    • If you’re using portable heaters, keep them away from furniture, draperies, and other flammable materials. If you use a potable heater that burns liquid fuel, make sure you have a window open for ventilation.

    • Always exercise caution if you use candles or oil lamps. Use flashlights instead of candles.

News from Dave Paul:

Dave has been hard at work across the district! Here's a few community updates: 

  • On Monday, Dave was named a WA Skills Center Superhero! Washington Skills Centers--like the Northwest Career and Technical Academy in Mount Vernon and the Sno-Isle Tech Center in Everett--provides valuable job training and career pathways for high school students across our state.

  • Dave toured the Snohomish County PUD Solar Project in Arlington to see how the PUD and our state are partnering to build a more resilient electric grid.

  • Last week, Dave attended the groundbreaking of the Mount Vernon Library Commons Project. This project is a testament for what we can achieve when state, local, and federal leaders listen to community needs and work together!

We have some exciting events coming up as well!

  • Saturday, Sept. 24th: Three campaigns in the 10th LD are having a day of action this coming Saturday Sept 24th, from 10:00 to 2:00. Please join us at 9:45 at the coffee shop in front of IGA on Camano. We will be knocking on doors until 2:00, and there will be a meet and greet with Dave, Clyde, and Janet right after. For more info, email beth@votedavepaul.com.

  • We have two forums coming up: The Stanwood/Camano branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) will be hosting a forum on Oct. 12th, and the League of Women Voters will be hosting a forum on Oct. 20th. More info to come!

For more volunteer opportunities, email beth@votedavepaul.com or visit our website.

We hope to see you at some of these events soon--the election is coming up quick!
