Extreme Cold Safety Tips for Monday night into Wednesday morning
Stay indoors during the worst part of the extreme cold.
Keep a winter survival kit in your vehicle if you must travel.
Check tire pressure, antifreeze levels, heater/defroster, etc.
Learn how to shut off water valves for potential pipe bursts.
Check on the elderly.
Bring pets inside.
How Should I Dress? Wear layers of loose-fitting, lightweight, warm clothing, and a hat. Mittens, snug at the wrist, are better than gloves.
