Your home is your first line of defense for shelter.

Prepare Your Home for Cold Weather

  • Disconnect and drain garden hoses
  • Insulate outside faucets and backflow devices
  • Insulate exposed pipes in unheated areas such as crawl spaces, garage, and attic
  • Locate your main shutoff and be sure that you can shutoff the water
  • If temperatures are very cold then let one or more faucets drip to prevent water from freezing in the pipes
