• Tips for Staying Safe in the Cold:

    • Stay indoors as much as possible and limit your exposure to the cold;
    • Dress in layers and keep dry.
    • Check on family, friends, and neighbors who are at risk and may need additional assistance.
    • Know the symptoms of cold-related health issues such as frostbite and hypothermia and seek medical attention if health conditions are severe.
    • Bring your pets indoors or ensure they have a warm shelter area with unfrozen water.
    • Make sure your vehicle has an emergency kit that includes an ice scraper, blanket and flashlight – and keep the fuel tank above half full.
    • Never run a gasoline or propane heater or a grill (gas or charcoal) inside your home or an
    • unventilated garage.
    • Never run a car in an enclosed space. If a vehicle is running, you must have a door open to the outside.
