Winter Weather Guide
From the Fairfax County Government’s Winter Guide:
Winter is clearly here today with the ice cold, polar temperatures.
If you see someone who is unsheltered and may need hypothermia prevention help, please call 703-691-2131. Our six emergency shelters have added capacity in the winter, and we have dozens of faith communities who also help provide shelter all winter long.
With winter here, we’ve published a winter weather guide. It’s not comprehensive, but selective to include topics such as:
– VDOT Snow Removal
– Walkways and Sidewalks
– 7 Places to Consider Shoveling Snow
– New National Weather Service Commuter Alerts
– New Snow Day Camps for Kids
– Cold Weather Tips
– Links to Other Key Topics
Here’s the link to the guide: http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/news2/your-guide-to-winter-weather-in-fairfax-county/ which includes a great link to helping prevent frozen pipes & plumbing: http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/living/winter/freezing-pipes-plumbing.htm
If your pipes do freeze & burst – after you turn off your main water valve and call a plumber, call 703-212-7000 (ServiceMaster NCR) to take care of the water damage.
Stay warm today and safe & dry all winter!
