TIPS TO AVOID FROZEN PIPES
With the next drop in temperature on the horizon, the Fire Department would like to remind residents of these tips to help them avoid frozen pipes:
- Open sink cabinets so warm air can circulate in the space beneath the sink.
- Let faucets drip; even a little bit of water flow can help prevent pipes from freezing.
- Locate your main water shut off; in the event that a pipe does burst, you’ll need to be able to turn off your water. Most shut off valves are located either at the water meter or where the main line enters the house. If you’re having difficulty locating the shut off valve, don’t hesitate to call the Mt. Healthy Fire Department at 513-931-8840 ext. 501, and our firefighters will be happy to come out and help you locate it.
Keep these tips in mind and you should be able to enjoy a safe and dry (if cold) rest of your week!

Tips to Stay Warm During a Power Outage:
Alert Hamilton County
Stay warm AND safe while the power is out. Please read some helpful tips for staying SAFE while trying to stay warm.
Limit time outside. If you need to go outside, wear layers of warm clothing, mittens, and a hat to cover skin.
While indoors, layer clothing and blankets to keep warm. Close doors to every room you will not be using and huddle members of your household in one small room.
Keep blinds and curtains closed to trap warmth in and keep cold air out. Use towels to block drafts under doors and on window sills.
If you are heating your home with a fireplace, be sure to have a metal or heat-safe screen. If you have a wood stove, keep doors closed unless adding wood or stoking the fire.
While generators can be helpful, DO NOT use your generator indoors. Keep the generator outside, in a well ventilated area, away from doors and windows.
If driving conditions are safe, you may consider visiting a shopping mall, restaurant, or library to stay warm and entertained.
