Winter can bring extremely cold temperatures!
It's important that people prepare to ensure that they, their families, and neighbors are safe!
Follow these guidelines to stay safe, healthy and warm:
Try to stay indoors when weather is extremely cold, especially if winds are high.
If you must go outdoors, make trips outside as brief as possible.
Dress in layers of warm clothing if you plan to be outdoors.
Protect your head, neck, hands and feet from the cold by wearing a hat, scarf, gloves and socks.
Offer to help people in your neighborhood who may have limited access to heat.
Check frequently on seniors and people who are ill.
During peak cold times, visit indoor public facilities such as shopping malls, libraries or senior centers, if you don't have enough heat in your home. Check that they are open before venturing outdoors.
Do not leave pets outside.
If you use an outdoor generator at home, place it at least 10 feet away from all doors and windows to avoid exhaust gases entering the home.
Never use stoves, barbecues, or ovens in place of approved heaters such as electric, natural gas or fireplaces.
Install a carbon monoxide detector in your home to reduce the risk of poisoning.
Take extra precaution with children, the elderly, and people with disabilities or special medical needs to ensure they don't get too cold.
