How do I prepare my home for freezing?
It is important to protect your pipes from the cold. Safety officials recommend protecting outdoor pipes by disconnecting garden hoses from your home and installing covers on outdoor faucets.
Also, if the sink is along the exterior wall of your home, allow a little water to flow and open the cabinet doors to allow warm air to circulate.
The National Weather Service says that when temperatures drop to 28 degrees Fahrenheit or below for a few hours, you should bring pets inside, protect sensitive plants, protect outdoor pipes, allow indoor faucets to drip and turn off automatic sprinklers.
Space Heater Safety Tips (via CBS News)
If you use a heater, make sure it is not too close to things that can burn such as upholstered furniture, clothing, a mattress or bedding.
Never connect a space heater to an extension cord, always plug it directly into a wall outlet.
Remember to turn it off before leaving the room or going to bed. Keep it out of reach of children and pets. Look for signs of malfunction, especially on older models.
Make sure it has an auto shut off function.
Make sure you have smoke detectors that operate with new batteries. Change the battery twice a year.
On average, fires caused by portable heaters cause 65 deaths and 150 injuries annually, according to the US Fire Administration.
Overnight Sunday, firefighters battled several house fires across Oklahoma as temperatures dropped below freezing.
