What to do during winter storm and extreme cold.

First things first, it is best to stay inside.

If you have to go out, be careful on snow and ice!

Be sure you keep dry, change wet clothing frequently to prevent the loss of body heat. (once wet, clothing loses its insulating value and transmits heat rapidly.)

If you have to drive somewhere, travel during the day, don't go alone, let others know where you are going, and keep them updated on where you are...and stay on main roads!

Maintain venitilation when using kerosene heaters to avoid build-up of toxic fumes. Refuel kerosene heaters outside and keep them at least 3 ft. from flammable objects.

Conserve fuel, keep your home cooler than normal - maybe close off heat to some extra rooms.

Don't let the home get below 55 degrees (F).

If you must go outside, dress in several layers of loose-fitting, lightwt., warm clothing rather than one layer of heavy clothing. If possible, the outer layer should be tightly woven and water repellent.

Wear mittens/gloves. Mittens are warmer than gloves.

Wear a hat. You lose lots of heat through your head.

Cover your mouth with a scarf to protect your lungs.
