Vermont Emergency Management
If you received snow yesterday PLEASE check your heating vents (particularly low-lying) to make sure they are clear of snow. A blocked vent could lead to carbon monoxide (CO) buildup in your house and that can make you sick or even kill. Even if you didn't get significant snow, wind may have blown snow against the side of your home so please check either way and have a working CO and smoke detector in your home. Spread the word!
