Be Warm But Be Safe

Thu, Feb 11th, 2016

The coldest weather of the season will be here this weekend with wind chills down to 25 below on Sunday morning.

Here are some tips from the American Red Cross to keep safe in and out of the cold.

1. Layer up - Wear layers of lightweight clothing to stay warm. Gloves and a hat will help prevent losing your body heat.

2. Don't forget your pets - Bring pets indoors. If they can't come inside, make sure they have enough shelter to keep warm and that they can get to unfrozen water.

3. Remember the three feet rule - If you are using a space heater, place it on a level, hard surface and keep anything flammable at least three feet away.

4. Supervision required - Turn off space heaters and make sure fireplace embers are out before leaving the room or going to bed.

5. Don't catch fire - If you are using a fireplace, use a glass or metal screen large enough to catch sparks and rolling logs.
