Fair Lawn Emergency Management reminds everyone of the following tips to stay safe during extreme cold:
• Stay indoors as much as possible and limit your exposure to the cold
• Dress in layers and keep dry
• Never run a gasoline or propane heater inside your home or an unventilated garage. Any heating system that burns fuel will produce carbon monoxide. Make sure you have a working carbon monoxide detector.
• Check on family, friends, and neighbors who are at risk and may need additional assistance
• Know the symptoms of cold-related health issues such as frostbite and hypothermia and seek medical attention if health conditions are severe.
• Bring your pets indoors or ensure they have a warm shelter area with unfrozen water.
• Make sure your vehicle has an emergency kit that includes an ice scraper, blanket and flashlight – and keep the fuel tank above half full.
