Stay Safe While Keeping Warm

Keep your family and home safe during the cold winter months by following these tips for safe heating:

Winterize your home.
Install weather stripping, insulation, and storm windows. Insulated water lines that run along exterior walls.

Check your heating systems.
Have your heating system serviced professionally to make sure that it is clean, working properly, and ventilated to the outside. Inspect and clean fireplaces and chimneys.

Ensure your carbon monoxide detectors are working properly. Install one to alert you to the presence of this deadly gas.

Chimney: Over time, creosote, a combination of soot and ash can build up in the chimney, reducing the diameter of the flue and restricting the escape of smoke, which could cause a fire in the flue. A clean chimney allows smoke to escape more freely, which increases the efficiency of your fireplace as a whole. #safetymessage #homewinterization

**update** The Village of Luxemburg lost power at 2:40 on Monday afternoon thanks to three outages. In total, roughly three-thousand people were affected. Approximately 2,900 had power restored by 5 PM with the last outage resolved after 7 PM. Wisconsin Public Service Communications Specialist Matt Cullen says WPS helped resolve the problems that originated from a transmission line failure.

The line is operated by American Transmission Company, a regional power provider. Transmission lines deliver power from plants to local substations. Schools, businesses, and homes were all affected.

October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month

Own IT – Understanding your digital profile and how it can be accessed is key to learning how to protect it. Cell phones, computers, and other smart devices in your home can all serve as potential access points for digital thieves. Users should keep track of where their personal information has been entered on physical devices, along with what online accounts they have created and what information is publicly viewable through them.

Secure IT – Most online systems include security measures that are meant to make it harder for unauthorized users to access your accounts. However, criminals have become very skilled at getting account information out of users. Make sure you are using all the tools available for securing accounts by setting strong passwords, using two-factor authentication when available, and by watching for phishing scams.

Protect IT – Every action you take online leaves behind a digital trail, which cybercriminals can try to use to their advantage when attempting to access your digital profile. Make sure you are practicing good cyber hygiene by regularly reviewing privacy settings on any publicly viewable platform, while setting strong passwords for your accounts and changing them regularly.
