Weather Safety Tips

  • Be sure to have your vehicles tires checked by your mechanic. The key to avoiding slide offs is to have good traction! Remember, unless its an essential need it is always safest to stay home when the roads are icy.
  • Long exposure times to the cold can cause medical problems. Be aware of signs and symptoms of frost bite and hypothermia. If working outside, work in short increments to avoid cold emergencies..
  • Protect your property. Keep grass and excesive weeds trimmed and remove combustible materials from the edges of your house. Even in winter, grass fires are still a major threat!
  • Be aware of changing weather patterns, and keep an eye on the forecast. Be Prepared.
