Winter Safety Tips
Check the batteries of your household smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
Never use a gas range or oven to heat your living environment.
Never use a charcoal grill, hibachi, lantern, or portable camping stove inside a home.
Clear snow from exhaust vents of household dryers and Direct Vent Gas Furnace Systems.
Never leave the motor running in a vehicle parked in an enclosed or partially enclosed space. If your vehicle is outside, clear the snow away from the exhaust pipe before running the engine.
Protect yourself by dressing appropriately: multiple light layers, hat and mittens, water resistant boots and outer layer.
Be careful of over-exertion and muscle strain when shoveling snow.
Be aware of safe, winter driving tips, and prepare a winter emergency supply kit to keep in your vehicle.
