Special cautions required during freezing temperatures

Local residents woke up to frigid temperatures reaching the low teens throughout the Lakelands.  During the week maximum temperatures will struggle to get above the freezing most days. 

These extreme low temperatures require steps to protect your property and health from the cold.  If you go outside, wear several layers of loose fitting, lightweight, warm clothing rather than one layer of heavy clothing.  Mittens are warmer than gloves, wear a hat and cover your mouth with a scarf.

If driving, keep your gas tank near full to avoid ice in the tank and fuel lines.  Check your antifreeze and windshield washer fluid levels.

Be sure to carry a fully charged cell phone. 

While at home, consider allowing indoor plumbing fixtures to drip to permit water to trickle through pipes to help prevent freezing.

Use caution with space heaters in order to avoid fire or injury.

If emergency generators will be used, they must be situated outdoors in well-ventilated areas to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning.

Also remember to check in on family, friends and elderly neighbors who might be susceptible to the cold.  Please do not forget about your pets and livestock.  Make sure they have a source of water that will not freeze and a warm place to take shelter from the wind and cold.

Do not attempt to walk on frozen ponds, lakes or streams as the ice will not be thick enough to support the weight, even of a child. 

Using these tips and common sense during these frigid days will help keep you and your loved ones safe.  Remember, if you find yourself in trouble please contact someone or call 911.
