    Be
    mindful of your neighbors and your friends and family. Many people are forced to use alternative heat methods when the cold temps arrive and there is no money for wood/fuel etc.
    The family in this article made the tragic mistake of using a heat gun to attempt to warm a room in their home.
    They are not the only family this winter who will make tragic mistakes in trying to keep warm.

    Just a reminder that we should watch out for others as the cold temps begin to pour in.
