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.
