Tips to stay safe this winter season
Are you prepared for winter?
This upcoming winter season the best way to stay safe and warm is to plan ahead...
Install weather stripping . If you can see light around the edges of your doors, you need new weatherstripping. It will save you hundred of dollars in electrical bills.
Clean out the gutters, repair roof leaks. Removing debris such as acorns leaves and twigs is very important prior to the winter season to prevent ice dams.
Service the radiator and maintain antifreeze level.
Keep your gas tank at least half full to avoid ice in the tank and fuel lines, and prepare a winter emergency kit to keep in your car in case you become stranded.
Above all, be ready to check on family and neighbors who are especially at risk from cold weather hazards like young children, older adults, and the chronically ill.
No one can stop Mother Nature. However, with a little planning, you will be ready when she hits.
