Staying warm when the power is out


From the Dunn County Facebook page:


Here are some excellent tips for staying warm during a power outage!


When the power goes out in winter, the cold can be deadly--but even without power, there are still ways to warm things up. Closing blinds and curtains and closing room doors can help contain heat, and stuffing towels in the cracks under doors can help keep the warmth in. Don’t forget about eating and staying hydrated - food provides energy to warm the body.

Portable generators are useful during storms but can cause injury and death if not used safely.


Keep portable generators outside, away from windows, and as far away as possible from your home.
