There were some large wind gusts associated with Thursday's storm and people had to spend a lot of time outside shoveling because of the amount of snow. Danbury Fire Chief Geoff Herald says the cold can especially effect you when you're out for longer periods of time.
Herald is reminding residents to check the batteries in their smoke detectors and to have working carbon monoxide detectors in the home.
Herald is also asking residents when they shovel their driveways or sidewalks to also clear a path to fire hydrants that may be on their property. He says trying to find the hydrants at night or even during the day when they're covered can be a challenge. He called the hydrants a life saving tool.
