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
