Winter Weather Preparation Tips

Get Ready for Snow and Ice

A winter storm is in today's forecast. With that in mind, we’ve sent the following tips to your customers this morning. We hope everyone stays safe and warm. Know that we are here should you or your customers need assistance.

For Your Home

  • To prevent frozen pipes, set your thermostat to a warm temperature. If you're leaving town, set it to no lower than 65 degrees.
  • Make sure you have working flashlights, nonperishable food items and water in case you lose power or the storm keeps you house-bound for more than a day.
  • Stay indoors during the storm and follow these tips to avoid snow shoveling-related injuries.

On the Road

  • Snow can accumulate quickly, creating slick conditions. If possible, avoid driving during the storm.
  • If you must drive, be sure to stock your vehicle's winter roadside emergency kit with all the essentials including snacks, blankets, a windshield de-icer, a spare phone charger and flare lights. Check your oil and antifreeze levels.
  • If there’s even the slightest threat of snow in the forecast, keep your motorcycle off the road, properly stored and winterized.
