Staying safe and warm in Baton Rouge low temps
BATON ROUGE - The cold weather has arrived and as south Louisiana residents reach for their jackets and mugs of hot coffee, officials are also reminding them to keep a few safety suggestions in mind.
While braving the drop in temperatures, it may be helpful to:
-ensure that all fire alarms in your home are working
-space heaters should be plugged into electricity outlets that are on walls, NOT into power strips.
