Preparing for Cold Weather

Preparing for Cold Weather

Cold weather is coming and people in our area are preparing.
LOGAN TOWNSHIP, BLAIR COUNTY - Cold weather is coming and people in our area are preparing.

When cold weather is coming you want to make sure your house is warm. You should have a professional make sure your furnace is working properly. If you have a fireplace, make sure your chimney is clean too.

Travis Lunglhofer is the Fire Chief with the Logan Township Volunteer Fire Company.  He says this time of year you see more house fires because people are starting heating appliances for the first time.

Peter Martens got his furnace checked last week. This weekend was time for his lawn. He was trying to get all his leaves raked and bagged ahead of the cold weather.

And if you're traveling during this time, PennDOT recommends getting your car checked and make sure it's ready for the cold as well.

You should also keep a close eye on your pets. Don't let them spend too much time outside with shelter and make sure their water doesn't freeze.
