Winter storms can cause just as much damage to your home as a summer storm. Snow storms can bring freezing temperatures, feet of snow and ice, and high winds. Power can go out and roads may become hazardous. Preparing for a storm is the best way to keep your family and home safe!

Winter Storm Preparations

  • Weatherproof / Winterize your home.
    • Add extra insulation in your attic, insulate doors & windows, and insulate any water lines along exterior walls so they are less likely to freeze. 
    • This will help prevent ice dams from forming as well.
  • Keep as much heat as possible in your home during a storm.
    • Avoid unnecessary opening of doors or windows, close off unneeded rooms, and close curtains on windows at night.
    • You don't want your pipes to freeze and burst!
  • Organize a back-up heating source if the power goes out.
    • Gas or log fireplaces, portable heaters.
  • Make sure you have flashlights and batteries handy.
    • Using flashlights is a safer option than using candles all around your home.
  • Leave all water taps slightly on so they drip continuously.
    • This helps prevent frozen pipes or burst pipes.
