With the freezing weather coming here are some important safety tips for staying warm and safe during this Arctic Blast

  • Check batteries in or install carbon monoxide sensors and smoke detectors
  • Do not use your stove or oven to heat your home
  • Make sure all heaters are clear of obstructions and away from flammable materials
  • Please make sure space heaters are off before going to bed
  • Maintain a distance of at least 3 feet or more from any open flame heaters
  • Check fireplace flues for obstructions prior to lighting fires

Please stay safe, La Marque. Remember the 4 Ps: 

  • PEOPLE: Make a plan to keep your family warm. Check on elderly relatives and neighbors who may need extra blankets, help winterizing their homes or a warm place to stay.
  • PETS: Animals get cold, too! Bring pets inside to keep them healthy and safe during freezing conditions. 
  • PIPES: Cover or wrap exposed pipes to help prevent freezing and water line breaks.
  • PLANTS: If you're worried about your plants, either cover them or bring them inside to protect them from the freeze.
