During the first frost and possible freeze of the year, residents are advised to remember to protect the four Ps: people, plants, pipes and pets.

How to protect the 4 Ps:

  • Check on the elderly and other vulnerable people in the community.
  • Bring in pets if at all possible, or if you have feral pets like cats, provide them with a warm, dry and wind-free place for them to sleep.
  • Bring in all plants and cover any you cannot bring inside.
  • Protect exposed and exterior pipes. One tried-and-true way to protect pipes is to leave an interior sink or two dripping.

Looking past this cold snap, temperatures are forecast to warm up once again by Saturday.
