Also, remember to frequently check your furnace’s outdoor vent. Snow drifts can block your vent and cause carbon monoxide to be released into your home. These vents, located on the outside of your home are often forgotten, but should be regularly cleared of snow, ice and debris during the entire heating season.

Most Importantly Remember to  Dial 911  in an Emergency.
