Cold Weather Tips

THE COLD WEATHER WILL BE HERE BEFORE WE KNOW IT AND THIS IS A GREAT CHANCE TO TAKE SOME TIME TO MAKE SURE OUR HOMES ARE READY FOR THE WINTER SEASON. CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING IS ANOTHER DANGER DURING THE WINTER MONTHS. AS TEMPERATURES FALL, PEOPLE SPEND MORE TIME INDOORS AND THE POTENTIAL FOR CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING BECOMES MORE OF A RISK. CARBON MONOXIDE IS AN ODORLESS, POISONOUS GAS THAT CAN COLLECT IN A HOME, CAR OR GARAGE AND CAN COME FROM A VARIETY OF SOURCES, INCLUDING WATER HEATERS, GAS OR KEROSENE SPACE HEATERS, GAS BOILERS, GAS RANGES AND OVENS, GAS DRYERS, CHARCOAL OR GAS GRILLS, FIREPLACES, GENERATORS AND WOOD STOVES, VEHICLES AND YARD EQUIPMENT WITH GASOLINE POWERED ENGINES.
