Mid-Monthly Emergency Preparedness Topic – Cold Weather Illness   With low temperatures comes a responsibility to prepare and take precautions against cold weather illness.  This month’s poster can be downloaded at http://emergency.oregonstate.edu/files/EP-Bulletin/01-15%20ColdWeatherIllness.pdf

Fire safety warning: Recently a small fire occurred in an individual’s office on campus when a portable space heater was plugged into a fuse-protected power strip which was chained to another power strip before it made it to a wall receptacle.  Three other items were plugged into the final power strip which resulted in an overload situation. The power strip failed to trip prior to allowing the cord to overheat and catch fire.  With winter upon us it is important to follow proper safety precautions when using a space heater in your office, these include: plug your space heater directly into a wall receptacle not an extension cord or power strip, use only heaters that are UL listed and are equipped with a safety tip-over switch, place heater out in the open and provide 36” clearance around heater, turn the unit off when you leave your office and unplug it when you leave for the day.
