Winter Storm Safety
- When using alternative heaters such as fireplaces, wood stoves, and space heaters always keep children and pets at a safe distance (3 feet min.). This will also reduce the possibility of accidental burns.
- Never use liquid fuel to start the fire in a fireplace or wood burning stove.
- When using alternative lighting sources, such as candles, always keep children and pets at a safe distance (3 feet min.) This will also reduce the possibility of accidental burns. If using a fuel-burning "Camp lantern" indoors, make sure you properly ventilate the room by cracking open a window. Never leave candles or lanterns unattended.
- Stay inside your home. Close off unneeded rooms. Cover windows at night.
- Eat to provide your body with energy for producing its own heat.
- Drink to keep your body replenished with fluids to prevent dehydration.
- Wear layers of loose-fitting, lightweight, warm clothing. Remove layers to avoid overheating, perspiration and subsequent chills.
- The Warren County Department of Fire and Rescue Services strongly recommends testing your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors whenever fuel fired auxiliary heaters or lanterns are used.
