KIYU INFO

 

NEW-Win $100!!! Guess the Mystery Picture and win. Full details and rules are here. Good luck!

NEW- KIYU has a few "over the air" TV antennas available FREE to community members who want to receive ARCS TV (where available). If you are in a village outside of Galena that has ARCS service call us at 1-800-478-KIYU(5498) and we will send you some. Preference will be given to elders and contributors to KIYU. Others will be put on a list in order of their inquiry. While supplies last, service not available in all areas, antenna is no guarantee of reception as service may not work in some locations, KIYU not responsible for viewers becoming couch potatoes.

 

NEW-With colder weather here and extreme temperatures being forecasted, here is some Winter Weather preparedness information.

-Make sure you have planned ahead on heating fuel needs

-Have adequate water supply (Galena water & sewer trucks will not run if it gets 40 below or colder and this may hold true in other villages too. Pipes freeze during extreme temps so plan ahead and have a stand-by supply ready). 

-Make sure your water circulating pumps are on and heat traces plugged in

-Make sure your wood supply is handy if you burn wood as your heat source and make sure chimneys are swept

-Have several days of food supplies on hand in case local stores can't open or supplies are available due to cancellation of flights

-Remember, propane tanks will freeze up when the ambient temperature drops below -44°F.

-Check on elders and family and neighbors with special needs to make sure they are prepared

-Have extra blankets and/or sleeping bags on hand in the event you lose a heat source

-Have a flashlight and battery operated radio in case of power outage

-Plan ahead on plugging your vehicle in, possibly make plans to carpool if needed

-If you do have to drive, even around town, have a safety kit of blankets, food, extra clothing, emergency flares, first aid kit among other items mentioned at the links below

-Dress for the extreme cold when venturing outdoors. Even if it is for a short while.

-While it is not recommended, if you must travel on sno-go between villages, make sure you tell someone where you are going and what time you plan to leave or arrive. Be adequately dressed and have an emergency kit packed. If possible, have a satellite phone with you.

Here are some additional Winter Weather safety tips. Plus, the Red Cross has a Winter Weather Safety Checklist here. A Be Red Cross Ready checklist here and a Power Outage checklist here.
