Scottish Water is encouraging customers across Angus to ensure homes and businesses are protected and prepared for winter.
Protect your pipes - Be prepared, is the utility company’s winter message, asking customers throughout the area to protect their pipes, be prepared and heat, insulate and protect their home and business.
It will advise them what to do to prevent frozen or burst pipes, how to locate their stop valve, what to do in an emergency.
Steve Scott, Scottish Water’s regional community manager for Angus, said: “Our winter campaign aims to inform our customers, homeowners and businesses about the importance of acting now to protect their pipes to avoid the hardships that so many experienced in recent winters.
“While there’s no telling whether the extreme conditions of the last few years could be repeated again, it is sensible for customers to start thinking about protecting their pipes now and make sure they are prepared.”
For the fifth year in succession, STV weather forecaster, Sean Batty is supporting Scottish Water’s campaign.
Sean said: “The past few winters proved to be a real mixed bag with extreme snow and rainfall to mild, stormy weather and everything in between.
“This highlights just how volatile our weather can be and how we need to be prepared for anything by ensuring that we heat, insulate and protect our homes and businesses against the elements.”
