The cold temperatures have arrived and will remain for a while still. As you try and stay warm, here are some safety measures to keep in mind at home.



- Be sure smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are working.

- Don’t use stoves, ovens or grills as sources of heat.

- When using a space heater be sure to keep anything flammable at least three feet away, such as clothing, bedding, paper or rugs. Also, be sure to turn off and unplug space heaters before leaving the room or going to bed.

 

- Use a glass or metal screen in front of fireplaces to catch sparks of rolling logs.

- Protect your pipes by letting the faucets drip, even at a trickle, in order to prevent them from freezing. Also, keep cabinet doors open near pipes to allow warm air to circulate around them.

 

Keep warm & stay safe!
