STORM SAFETY TIPS:
- Never touch a downed power line, it could be charged and injure you;
- Make sure trees and debris are clear of any lines as contact can also lead to electrocution;
- If using a generator, run it outdoors in a well-ventilated area. Ensure it cannot vent back into living areas – Exhaust can cause Carbon Monoxide poisoning which could be lethal;
- Make sure all exterior heating vents are clear and operating properly – A blocked vent means exhaust can come back into living areas causing Carbon Monoxide poisoning;
- Slow down;
- Remove ALL snow and ice from your car – It can impede visibility and fly off on the road and create a hazard.
