WHAT YOU CAN DO, WHAT YOU CAN USE

Green Your Winter and Your Holidays - Have your home heating serviced to keep it efficient. Make sure your fireplace or wood stove is working properly and burns smoke-free indoors. Prepare for snow and ice storms.

Snow and ice - Prepare ahead for winter's worst. Generator exhaust is toxic, and always put generators outside well away from doors, windows, and vents. Find de-icers that are safer for the environment. Learn more about reducing risks when severe snow or ice is forecast.

Remember: Lead Safe Work - If you're planning to have work done on your home, look for contractors certified for lead-safe renovation. Lead paint is the main way people are exposed to lead in the U.S., and lead exposure can cause a range of health problems from behavioral disorders and learning disabilities to seizures and death, putting young children and their developing nervous systems at the greatest risk. EPA has fined contractors who violated lead-safe work practices designed to prevent or reduce hazardous lead dust from common renovation or home repair activities.
