5 Snow Storm Safety Tips for Your Home

Each year, hundreds of Americans are injured or killed by exposure to cold, vehicle accidents on wintry roads, and fires caused by the improper use of heaters. And with the recent winter storm that hit Prescott and Northern Arizona this past weekend that caused a freeze warning, slick pavement, road closures and delays it’s important to be cautious. Here are 5 snow storm safety tips for your home to help keep you and your family safe this winter.

  1. Make sure your home heating sources are installed according to local codes and permit requirements and are clean and in working order.
  2. Make sure your home is properly insulated. Caulk and weather-strip doors and windowsills to keep cold air out.
  3. Install storm windows or cover windows with plastic from the inside to provide an extra layer of insulation to keep cold air out.
  4. Consider buying emergency heating equipment, such as a wood- or coal-burning stove or an electric or kerosene heater.
  5. Protect your pipes from freezing by keeping garage doors closed if there are water supply lines in the garage, opening kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors to allow warmer air to circulate around the plumbing, and letting the cold-water drip from the faucet served by exposed pipes.
