Protect the 4 P’s – People, Pets, Pipes, and Plants
When temperatures drop, it’s important to remember to protect the 4 Ps (People, Pets, Pipes and Plants) during cold temperatures.
- People should dress warmly, in layers, to avoid hypothermia (abnormally low body temperature).
- Pets should be brought indoors or provided with a warm place to sleep.
- Pipes that run outside or under a house should be wrapped in pipe insulation to avoid cracks due to water freezing in them.
- Plants may need to be covered or brought inside to avoid frost damage.
