How to cope without natural gas




        • DO dress warmly and in layers, wrap in blankets if necessary and use electric blankets if possible.

        • DON'T use alternative sources of heat, such as kerosene space heaters, electric space heaters or your electric oven to warm your home. These sources greatly increase the risk of fire or. in the case of kerosene heaters, asphyxiation.

        • DO stay home to admit Cinergy workers when they are in your neighborhood to check your gas line and turn the gas back on in your home. If you won't be home, call Cinergy at (513) 651-4466, or (513) 421-9500 to advise them of when you will be available.
       

For help:
               • Call Newport city hall hot line at (859) 291-2333 with questions or in an emergency related to lack of heat.

        • You can shower at the Campbell County YMCA at 1437 S. Fort Thomas Ave. from 6 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

        • If you have questions about cold weather safety, call the Cincinnati chapter of the American Red Cross at (513) 579-3000.
