    Residents encouraged to practice cold weather and fire safety

    Santa Rosa County Public Safety urges residents to be prepared for the cold weather that will settle Tuesday night through Wednesday morning by remembering the 5 P's of cold weather safety. Santa Rosa County is under a freeze warning from 1-8 a.m. (except for the immediate coast). Temperatures are expected to be at their coldest early Wednesday morning with many areas of the county dipping to 32 degrees or below.
    ·    Protect People: Remember to dress in layers and wear a hat and gloves. It is important to try to stay out of the wind and to stay dry. Also, remember to check on young children and elderly family and neighbors who are the most sensitive to cold weather. If the temperature cannot be maintained at a home, make temporary arrangements to stay elsewhere, including with friends and family.
    ·    Protect Pets: If cold weather is in the forecast, be sure to bring outdoor pets inside or give them a warm shelter to stay in.
    ·    Protect Plants: Cover cold-sensitive plants to protect them from dangerous temperatures.
    ·    Protect Pipes: Cover pipes and allow outdoor faucets to slowly drip to prevent freezing and breaking.
    ·    Practice Fire Safety: Use safe heating sources indoors. Do not use fuel-burning devices such as grills; they release carbon monoxide, which is a deadly gas. Also, make sure to use space heaters according to their instructions and be attentive to open flames.
    Residents should also avoid outdoor burning of any type today. Santa Rosa County is under a red flag warning from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. today, Tue., Oct. 18. According to National Weather Service Mobile, a combination of winds around 15 mph, low relative humidity and dry fuels will lead to extreme fire behavior today.
