This time of year shows us how the stack of dominoes fall. Winter weather hits, power outages drop the temps of the home, alternative heating measures are put in place and unanticipated tragedy strikes in the form of a house fire or carbon monoxide poisoning. Sadly, too many families in the Southern MidWestern states found this out last week.

This tragedy can be avoided if we follow a few tips from the National Fire Protection Association. As with most rules of thumb, be prepared.
