Winter Safety

While thunderstorms and tornadoes can occur in fall and winter, this time of year adds additional dangers caused by cold, ice, and snow. Being prepared for winter hazards requires that you provide for ways to keep warm if the heat goes off or you are stranded in a snowstorm. You also need to make sure your house is properly prepared by taking measures to insure that pipes will not freeze and that snow and ice do not pose a hazard to the roof.
