-Make sure all portable heaters are unplugged when not in use

-Use electric space heaters with extreme caution – avoid placing them near curtains or other flammable materials and turn them off before going to bed

-Keep heat at adequate levels or leave faucets open with a slight drip to prevent pipes from freezing
