Be safe out there! The roads on Vashon are covered with snow, slush, and ice. Please keep these safety tips in mind if you have to head out on the roads:
❄️ Brake and accelerate gently in a straight line. Don’t try to steer while braking. Never use cruise control in the snow.
❄️ Brake early, not often. Leave 6 to 10 car lengths in front of you.
❄️ Keep momentum when climbing slippery hills. If you pause or stop, you may not be able to get going again.
❄️ Completely clear snow and ice off your car before heading out.
❄️ Stay home if you can.

Hats off to VFR for continuing to post on Facebook.

@Mackenzie Ziegler these tips also apply to Montana driving!

Thank you for the safe driving tips!

Well said and necessary reminder

And 4-wheel drive will get you going faster on slippery roads, but will not stop you any faster on those slippery roads.

Be save everyone!

Thanks to Vashon Fire and rescue. We are so grateful. Thanks for rescuing my wallet, car keys and eye glasses. Those 3 items are going to be crucial over the next few days. You are the best. ❤️ 💙 💜

Thank you to our fire department. And our hearts go out to those affected by this fire

My heart goes out to the family; it will be 22 years next week since our house fire.

Good work crew. Sorry for the loss of property. Glad there was no one hurt.

Keep up the good work

Thank you to Vashon FireDept. And prayers for the family.

Does this family have a temp place to stay?
