WINTER WEATHER SAFETY

Winter Weather: Indoor Safety Highlights
~ Use fireplace, wood stoves, or other combustion heaters only if they are properly vented to the outside and do not leak flue gas into the indoor air space.
~ Never use a charcoal or gas grill indoors—the fumes are deadly.
~ Never leave lit candles unattended.
~ Keep as much heat as possible inside your home.
~ Check the temperature in your home often during severely cold weather.
~ Leave all water taps slightly open so they drip continuously.
~ Eat well-balanced meals to help you stay warmer.

Winter Weather: Outdoor Safety Highlights
~ Dress warmly and stay dry.
~ Wear a hat, scarf, and gloves.
~ If you have to do heavy outdoor chores, dress warmly and work slowly.
~ Avoid walking on ice or getting wet.
~ Notify friends and family where you will be before you go out.
~ Avoid traveling on ice-covered roads, overpasses, and bridges if at all possible.
~ I you are stranded, it is safest to stay in your car.
