Now is the time to prepare for the hazards of winter weather before bitter cold and snowy/icy travel conditions sweep through. 

The NWS's Winter Safety website is a great resource for winter safety information. 

The Birmingham NWS Winter Weather Awareness site has additional information.
Management of compressed gas cylinders is very dangerous because of the unusual characteristics some of them posses: storage under pressure, flammability, and many lack a distinguishable odor or color. Depending on the particular gas, there is a potential for simultaneous exposure to both physical and chemical hazards.

Improper handling, storage and use could lead to catastrophic events like:
  • Oxygen depleted atmosphere
  • Fires
  • Adverse health effects or even death
