Winter Precautions

Winter has arrived folks please remember to keep plenty of salt or sand available to prevent slip and fall accidents during snowy and icy weather. Keep power vents to all furnaces clear of snow build up and REMEMBER NEVER RUN GENERATORS INSIDE YOUR HOME OR GARAGE so that you don't succumb to carbon monoxide poisoning! If at all possible shovel the deep snow away from the closest hydrant to your home, this helps us help you quicker. Be mindful of thin ice dangers, especially on local ponds as many are spring fed. Check on elderly or handicapped neighbors during periods of extreme cold especially if they have limited family members in the area to attend to thier needs. Lastly if its to cold for you its to cold for your pet, limit the exposure of unattended periods of cold to your pets.
