2/11/2015 - Winter Safety Recommendations

Agawam Massachusetts

Press Release

For Immediate Release February 11, 2015

WINTER SAFETY RECOMMONDATIONS

The Mayor’s Office and the Plumbing and Gas Inspector are recommending that those residents with newer heating systems that are vented to the outside of the home are checked to make sure they are not covered with snow. The recent snow amounts have the potential for covering the vents which allow carbon monoxide to flow back into the home. Checking these vents can save lives. Please check on elderly residents in your neighborhood in the event they have this situation.

Also, a reminder not to run generators in your home or garage. Generators have to be run in well vented areas.
