Learn How to Fix a Broken Window • October Prep Challenge #4

The last preparedness challenge of October is to learn how to fix a broken window and buy a portable space heater. As temperatures become colder across the United States, the need for warmth inside increases.

A broken window after a disaster will let cold air in. Local repair people will be too busy to help you. Be prepared with supplies to cover your windows by yourself, or ask a friend for help. However, never try to reach a window you cannot access safely.

Buy a Portable Space Heater

  • Find a portable space heater to keep you warm.
  • Look at reviews for a heater that will work in most bedrooms in your home.
  • Do you want a propane heater or an electric heater? Follow all safety instructions.
  • If the number of broken windows is excessive, you may need to isolate to one room. Close the doors for added warmth.
  • If you need to evacuate to another house in your neighborhood, take your heater with you.

Once you know how to fix a broken window and find the right space heater, you will have confidence you can care for yourself when needed.

Best wishes and stay warm and cozy,

One thought

  1. I keep $1.00 shower curtain liners in stock from the dollar store for this very reason. They are clear and can keep the weather out from a broken or drafty window.
