4 Tips To Stay Safe this Winter

3 Tips for Home and car winter safety

From your house to your car, here are 4 things you can do to be prepared for the winter season.

Although it feels like spring time out there right now in Saskatchewan, we sadly all know this won’t last forever. Those cold temperatures are around the corner; and a drop in temperatures can bring some unpleasant outcomes. But staying prepared is how we make sure our house, car, and our bodies are safe for what’s to come. Of course there are many more things you can do, but here are 4 to get you started:

1. Stock Up on Winter Supplies

This is a great time to make sure you’re fully stocked with cold weather, essential supplies. Items like de-icing salt, snow shovels, and emergency blankets can be lifesavers during heavy snowfalls and freezing temperatures. Preparing ahead ensures that you’re ready to face the winter months with confidence and ease. Stay prepared, stay safe!

2. Check Your Furnace

The heart of your home’s warmth lies in a well-maintained furnace. As the cold sets in, ensure your furnace is in top working condition. Regular maintenance checks not only extend the life of your furnace but also keep your energy costs down and ensure your family’s safety and comfort.

3. Protect Your Pipes

As winter deepens, it’s crucial to protect your home’s plumbing. Insulate your pipes to prevent them from freezing and potentially bursting, which can lead to costly repairs. Remember, a small effort in insulation can save a lot of hassle and expense. Stay vigilant and keep your home safe and warm!

4. Winter Clothing + Shoes

If you’re in need of a new winter coat or boots, keep an eye out for the sales that have either already started or are around the corner. Companies will soon start putting out spring, which means the winter stock has got to go! But since Saskatchewan has its infamous 6 month long winter, we aren’t naive enough to think spring is actually that close (hahaha). So now is the time to get those essential items on sale!
