Merry Christmas

16th December, 2015

Christmas is just around the corner, and at Ice Watch, our busiest time of the year is beginning. Before the winter really starts to bite, we’d like to take the opportunity to thank our customers for their continued support throughout 2015 and look forward to another year of protecting UK businesses from extreme winter weather.

Stay Safe and Healthy this Christmas Season
As you prepare to relax and enjoy the holiday season, we would like to give you a few tips on avoiding the hazards that can come with plummeting temperatures.

  • Prepare Your Home for Winter
    Getting your home ready for the season doesn’t just mean putting up a Christmas tree. Check your heating system, install insulation, repair any leaks in your roof, and prevent your pipes from freezing.
  • Prepare Your Car for Winter
    The colder weather can take its toll on your car – as well as increasing the risk of accidents if snow and ice is on the road. Keep your tank full to avoid ice in the tank and fuel lines, and replace your tyres if necessary. Keep an emergency kit in your car in case you become stranded.
  • Prepare for Emergencies
    Extreme winter weather can cause emergency situations, such as the disruption caused recently by Storm Desmond and Storm Clodagh. With the National Grid winter capacity at a seven-year low, power outages are a distinct possibility. Stocking up on food that needs no cooking and preparing an emergency kit including a torch, spare batteries and first aid items could prove invaluable in the event of an emergency.
  • Stay Up to Date with Weather Warnings
    The Met Office recommends you stay up-to-date with weather forecasts over winter, including any weather warnings. Watch local weather reports, Check the Met Office website, www.metoffice.gov.uk, or follow the Met Office on social media. 
  • Check on Friends and Relatives
    Make sure your neighbours and loved ones are safe and healthy this holiday season, especially those who are elderly or have long term health conditions. 

Even if you are taking a short break this Christmas, our team will continue working throughout the holiday period to protect our clients from the threat of harsh weather conditions. With the bookies’ odds for a White Christmas increasing by the day, we are preparing for a busy festive period!

Everyone at Ice Watch would like to wish our clients and suppliers a safe and Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
Merry Christmas
