CINCINNATI (Adam Clements) -- Adam Clements has tips for dealing with the extreme cold from Hamilton.If you have to be outside, limit your time in the cold. Keep your skin as covered as you can. If your extremities go numb, that is your cue to get inside.Firefighters say don't use your stove or oven to heat your home, it can start a fire. EMTs also say they make extra runs when it's this cold, mainly for cardiac arrest. Some just can't handle the cold.Watch out for frozen pipes. If you have an older home, keep a drip going in your faucet. Flowing water makes it harder for pipes to freeze. If you have a space heater, use it properly. Don't have clothing or blankets near it. Make sure your space heater has an auto on/off switch. Firefighters warn against making your space heater a primary source of heat.
