Residents should practice fire safety and use safe heating sources indoors. Space heaters should be kept away from draperies, clothing, beds, and any other materials that are flammable and can cause a fire. Do not use fuel-burning devices such as grills; they release carbon monoxide, which is a deadly gas.
Pet owners should take proper precautions for pets. Dogs and cats that could be vulnerable to the cold may need to be brought inside or given a warm shelter to stay in.
