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


Winter Weather Safety Tips


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.

Please remember to turn off sprinklers when the temperature drops!
