A Guide On How To Keep Your Family And Home Safe This Winter Season

Holiday Winter Tips to Keep Your Family Safe and Warm - MomRN

Winter has officially arrived — which means frigid temperatures and snowstorms are in store for a majority of the country. While there are some positives that go along with the harsh weather, like snow days and cozying up to the fireplace, it’s important to be prepared and protect yourself, your family and your home in case of a winter weather-related emergency.

Here are some practical tips and recommendations you should know when a winter storm strikes.

 

1. Be prepared for a power outage and know how to use generators safely.

In the event of a winter storm, power outages are a likely possibility, especially when the snow is heavy or there’s ice in the forecast. Having a generator on hand will provide backup power to your home in case there’s a power outage. However, some safety rules must be abided by when using a generator. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends the following:

  • Never use a generator inside your home, in basements, in garages or near windows.
  • Generators should be located at least 20 feet from any window, door or vent and in a space where rain and snow will not be able to reach them.
  • Do not use the generator or appliances if they are wet.
  • Do not store gasoline indoors where the fumes from the generator could ignite.
  • Plug in appliances to the generator using individual heavy-duty, outdoor-rated extension cords.

While it’s clear that you should never use a generator indoors, it’s still important to have at least one working carbon monoxide detector on every level of your home to ensure that your generator isn’t spreading any dangerous fumes. This carbon monoxide detector by Kidde is also a smoke detector and provides protection even during power outages when many fire and carbon monoxide incidents can occur.

2. Heat your home safely.

If you’re using a space heater to help heat your home when it’s cold, you’ll have to be extra cautious. According to the Electrical Safety Foundation International, it’s important to read the manufacturer’s instructions and warning labels carefully before using any space heater. You should also inspect heaters regularly and discontinue use if you find loose connections or cracked or broken plugs. And, of course, keep in mind that a space heater should never be left unattended.

When choosing a space heater, opt for one that has A-plus safety ratings and features an automatic shut-off. This space heater from TaoTronics has built-in overheating and tip-over protection sensors, as well as a 12-hour timer, that work together to provide a much safer heating source. It’s also compact and ideal for heating an entire room such as a bedroom or office.

This store joins the Maspeth location (74-17 Grand Ave) in allowing shoppers to place an order at www.stopandshop.com, or on the Stop & Shop mobile app, head to the store, and have a Stop & Shop associate load their groceries right into their car.

To schedule a Pickup, customers can visit www.stopandshop.com, or the Stop & Shop mobile app, click on ‘order online’ and select “Pickup” at one’s preferred store.

Customers are asked to have their trunk or door open for associates to place groceries directly into their vehicle. Customers are also encouraged to wear masks and limit the number of people in their vehicle, when possible. In addition, all Stop & Shop Pickup associates will be wearing masks and follow all of the same sanitizing precautions as its in-store associates, including surface sanitization and regular hand washing.

Due to customer demand, supply may be limited for certain items like disinfecting wipes and other cleaning products and may not be available for purchase. Purchase limits are also still in place for certain high-demand items, and customers are encouraged to allow for comparable substitutions.

A $30 minimum is required on all Pickup orders and a $2.95 service fee will be applied at checkout. For more information on the new service, or to schedule a Pickup, visit www.stopandshop.com or download the Stop & Shop mobile app.
