Public Safety Advisory Committee
JANUARY 2020 SAFETY TIPS
These tips are intended for residents, visitors and property owners of Brookfield, VT but may apply to neighboring towns as well.
For those (snow birds) people who head somewhere warmer this time of year or persons who have second homes in Brookfield.
- Make sure you secure your home. Put a light or two on auto timers. Have someone keep an eye on things.
- Only tell trusted friends your plans.
- Some type of alarm is always a good idea, particularly one that alerts you or the neighbors that the heat or electricity have failed.
- If you’re gone through the winter, and you are going to leave your heat on, it’s good to drain your water system or put antifreeze in the hot water heating system, in case of loss of power or furnace failure.
- Stop the mail and the newspaper(s).
- If possible, have your driveways plowed.
- If you have another vehicle left outside, it’s good to have it cleaned of snow, to make it look like you are around.
No matter if you go away or stay, have a great year!!!
