Winter Storm Safety Tips for West Fargo?

1/19/2022 (Permalink)

Heavy snow covers trees outside a home. We mitigate storm damage 24-hours a day in Cass County.

West Fargo residents have been relying on SERVPRO® of Fargo to restore storm damage for years. Here are some tips from the National Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for staying warm and safe during a power outage.

  • Some gas-fueled heaters, such as vent-less gas fireplaces, require some ventilation. Otherwise, if you don’t need extra ventilation, keep as much heat as possible inside your home.
  • Avoid unnecessarily opening doors or windows
  • Close off unneeded rooms
  • Stuff towels or rags in cracks under doors
  • Close draperies or cover windows with blankets at night
  • Generators should be located at least twenty feet from any window, door, or vent and in a space where rain and snow will not reach them
  • Protect yourself from carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning by installing a battery-operated CO detector
  • Never use generators, gas or charcoal grills, camp stoves, or similar devices inside your home, in basements, in garages, or near windows. The fumes are deadly.
  • Plug in appliances to the generator using individual heavy-duty, outdoor-rated extension cords
  • Do not use the generator or appliances if they are wet
  • Do not store gasoline indoors where the fumes could ignite
