Be prepared for winter

PEOPLE in Milngavie and Bearsden are being encouraged to ensure homes and businesses are protected and prepared for the onset of wintry weather.

Scottish Water has published its ‘winter code’ - a set of simple steps on how to heat, insulate and protect properties.

The campaign encourages people to protect their pipes and advise them what to do to prevent a burst or freeze, and also how to locate their stop valve and what to do in an emergency.

Scottish Water is also implementing various initiatives to ensure it is well equipped in the event of another severe winter.
