Be Prepared for Winter
By Cathy Pearl
  

1     Winter may seem like a safe time of year. Snow is pretty. The weather is colder, but if you aren't out in the cold very long, it doesn't seem that bad. But winter can be a dangerous time of year, too. It is good to be ready before a storm comes so that you know what to do.
 
2     Hopefully your home or the place where you work will still have power during a storm. Heavy winds, ice, and snow can make the power go off. If this happens, there may not be any heat to keep you warm.
 
3     If you have a fireplace, you can use it to heat part of your house. Use it safely, and it can keep you warm until the power comes back on. If you don't have power, your house may stay warm for a short time. But if the power does not come back on, you may have to stay at another house. Go to a friend's house if it has power.
 
4     If there are many people who don't have power, your town will probably open an emergency shelter. This is a place where people can go to stay warm and eat if they need to. Don't be afraid to go there. It is a warm and safe place to go.
 
5     If you have a generator to use, follow the instructions carefully. Never run a generator in your house. You must run it outside. Many people die each year from running generators in or too close to their homes. Keep it as far away from your house as you can. Also, make sure you have carbon monoxide detectors in your house. They can save your life if this dangerous gas gets into your house.
