           Warns New Yorkers of Carbon Monoxide
              And Fire Hazards During Extreme
                            Cold Weather

           DCP Offers Tips to Help New Yorkers Stay Safe and Warm
                   The New York State Division of Consumer Protection
              today issued a consumer alert about the dangers of carbon
              monoxide and fire hazards in extreme cold weather. The
              winter months pose the most risk for these hazards—as
              the temperatures drop, consumers may turn to danger-
              ous heating alternatives to stay warm. Propane heaters,
              generators, space heaters and/or outdoor grills all pose
              lethal risks of carbon monoxide poisoning and fire haz-
              ards when used improperly.
                   “We are in the height of the winter months with shorter
              daylight hours and extreme cold weather. To help fight
              the extreme cold weather, many people seek additional
              ways to keep warm and these heating methods can often
              be dangerous,” said Acting Secretary of State Robert J.
              Rodriguez. “There are basic tips New Yorkers can follow
              to help stay warm and most importantly, safe throughout
              the winter months.”                                  Thanks to Councilman Francisco Moya for having DOT repair above pictured Pothole. The Pothole
                           (Continued on page 2)                   was on 111th Street and 47th Avenue in Corona Heights at the northwest corner of Golf Park. The
