Our first priority is helping you take care of yourself and your family. As beautiful as new fallen snow can be, it can also be disruptive, destructive, and deadly. Heavy snow on roadways can make for dangerous driving. Snow on power lines can also cause power outages that can last for days. Being prepared for heavy snowfall and having extra emergency supplies on hand is the best way to make sure your family stays safe both during and after the storm. 

Here are some useful tips and links to help you prepare and stay safe:



• Insulate your walls & attic
• Caulk doors & windows
• Have chimney inspected
• Keep water taps slightly open so they drip continuously
• Keep the cabinets under sinks open to allow warmer air in
• Clean out your gutters
• Inspect your roof for any damage
• Double check your emergency supplies in case of power outage
• Remove tree branches that could get weighed down
• Inspect your heating system
