Stay safe indoors during severe weather

We have some tips when it comes to winter weather and if you have a power outage.

Keep water running to prevent pipes from freezing.

All fuel-burning equipment should be vented to the outside and kept clear -- if you're running a generator it must be outside to prevent carbon monoxide fumes filling your home.

If your home does lose power, go to a designated public shelter during periods of extreme cold.
