Prepare For Winter’s Wrath

In many places, frigid temperatures and snow are on the way. Even warmer climates can experience freezing and snowfall at least once during the winter. This year, plan ahead so that you are ready to respond to severe winter weather:

  1. Prevent frozen pipes by identifying pipes most likely exposed to freezing temperatures
  2. If heavy snow is expected, have a plan to remove snow and prevent roof damage or collapse
  3. Prepare for weather emergencies by having an emergency kit ready to go

Winter weather can be damaging and dangerous. View the Severe Winter Weather Checklist from Church Mutual’s partner IBHS for more information, or visit our website Ask Risk Control Central to contact one of our professional risk consultants.
