A spokesperson for the Montgomery County Fire Department put out a warning to the public on Tuesday to be vigilant after a copperhead bite someone at Lake Needwood, just east of Rockville.

"If snake bitten, Immobilize bitten area & keep it lower than the heart. Get medical help. Do not attempt to drive yourself. Most of all, stay calm (to keep from pumping the poison around your system) Main thing is to get to a hospital," Pete Piringer with the MCFRS tweeted.

Piringer tweeted out a photo of the snake that can be viewed here.
