December Freeze Safety Tips

Posted: Updated:

With the “December Freeze” headed our way, it’s a good idea to make some preparations.

The American Red Cross said people should have a storm kit in their car that includes warm clothes, blankets, first aid materials, and canned food and water.  Cars should be winterized and gas tanks need to be full.

Homes should be insulated and water should run to prevent pipes from freezing and AA is urging residents to drive slowly and cautiously on roads or stay home if you don’t need to travel.
