Tips to help you during bad weather
- Ensure that you have adequate heating oil/solid fuel as appropriate.
- Ensure you have adequate provisions for a couple of days and have regular hot drinks and meals.
- If there are problems with the water do not leave the tap open as this can cause flooding when water supply returns.
- Where there is ice/snow ensure that pathways etc are clear.
- Do not make any unnecessary journeys.
- The best thing to do in extremely bad weather is to stay off the road. Take heed of warnings not to go out.
- If you’re away from your property during the bad weather, it’s important to make sure the pipes don’t freeze. As a precaution, it’s best to set a timer so the heating comes on at the coldest parts of the day at a low temperature.
- Keep room doors slightly open to allow the warm air to move around the house.
