COLD WEATHER TIPS

Mayor Amato would like residents to be prepared for the Cold weather season. Here are seven tips to help you prepare for and stay safe during the cold temperatures:
  • 1. Wear layers of lightweight clothing to stay warm. Gloves and a hat will help prevent losing body heat.
  • 2. Bring the pets indoors. If that’s not possible, make sure they have enough shelter to keep them warm and that they can get to unfrozen water.
  • 3. Avoid frozen pipes - run water, even at a trickle, to help prevent them from freezing. Keep the thermostat at the same temperature day and night to help avoid freezing pipes.
  • 4. Do not use a stove or oven to heat the home.
  • 5. Space heaters should sit on a level, hard surface and anything flammable should be kept at least three feet away.
  • 6. If using a fireplace, use a glass or metal fire screen large enough to catch sparks and rolling logs.
  • 7. Turn off space heaters and make sure fireplace embers are out before leaving the room or going to bed.
  • Weather Fluctuations Can Affect Plumbing

    Mayor Amato would like residents to be aware that SUEZ is urging their customers to be aware that seasonal freezing, as well as possible extreme temperature fluctuations can cause water line in homes, businesses and underground infrastructures to become damaged, resulting in cracked pipes More...
