The Four “P’s” of Winter Safety at Home



It’s that time again, Round Rock! Freezing temperatures are in the forecast so let’s be ready! 

Winter weather in central Texas can be unpredictable, but when temperatures fall into the 30’s or below remember the four “P’s” of safety:

  • PEOPLE: Keep your family warm and check on any elderly family or neighbors that may need extra blankets, winterizing their homes or a warm place to stay.
  • PETS: Dogs and cats get cold too. Bring them inside at night to keep them healthy and safe.
  • PLANTS: Either cover plants to keep them warm at night or bring them inside so they can flourish.
  • PIPES: Cover exposed pipes to prevent freezing and breaks.



Remember to turn off sprinklers when the temperature drops! For more winter weather FAQ’s
