Baby it's cold outside!
5 Ways to stay safe this winter
Winter is here and with it comes the snow, ice and freezing temperatures.
Yes, you should dress warm but there’s a lot more you need to do to be safe this winter — from getting your car ready to practicing safe shoveling.
Here are tips on being safe this winter from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:
Make your house warm
Winterize your car
It’s also a good idea to take your car in to have the radiator inspected and tire tread checked.
Be prepared to lose power
The Lehigh Valley has been there, done that, when it comes to snowstorms knocking out our power. Be ready: Have in your pantry a stock of shelf-stable items such as canned foods, tuna and peanut butter, as well as plenty of bottled water. And don’t forget your pets: Have extra pet food on hand as well as water. Buy extra batteries and have flashlights ready to go.
