Consider This: Cold weather preparations

Consider This

With the temperatures setting cold weather records there are things you can do to be prepared.

Consider This:

  • Have a winter weather kit with a portable radio or TV, flashlight, water and first aid items.
  • Plan for your outdoor pets with straw or warm bedding and unfrozen water.
  • Check to make sure your smoke detectors are working and review your fire escape plan.
  • Check on elderly or homebound neighbors.
  • Know how to shut off water if a pipe bursts.
  • Those are just a few things that you can to be better prepared. The good news is that this cold weather in our region will move out quickly. However, we'll probably have another winter blast before spring arrives so get prepared now, and you won't have to worry about next time.
