Winter Safety Checklist

Some quick tips provided to us via our city…

  • DE-ICE YOUR WALKWAYS/DRIVEWAYS – Are you ready for snow?  Be prepared for those potentially snowy/icy days … slipping and falling can be a hazard to you, your family/friends and even those annoying door-to-door salesmen!
  • INSULATE YOUR FAUCETS – Nothing will ruin the holiday  spirit faster than a flooded house!  In freezing temperatures, take protective measures to keep your pipes from freezing.
  • FIRE EXTINGUISHERS AND SMOKE DETECTORS – This is the season of cozy fireplace fires, fragrant candles, beautiful holiday lights, and turkeys roasting in the oven.  Be prepared in the unfortunate event of a fire!  check the batteries in your smoke detectors, ensure your fire extinguishers are up to date, and make sure your family has a plan for what to do in case of a fire.
  • CHECK YOUR LIGHTS – The days are getting shorter and it is getting dark earlier.  Verify bicycle lights are in good working order, and keep flashlights and candles on hand in case of a power outage.
