The coldest weather of the winter is set to move in to Hamilton this weekend and Hamilton Fire Chief Phil Stevens is issuing a warning about the dangers of frozen pipes.
The coldest temperatures of the season are forecasted to arrive just as the February school vacation starts.
“Many families will be going away and will turn the heat down,” Stevens said. “This could mean frozen pipes in some houses.”
Stevens reminds residents that if they are prone to frozen pipes, they should not turn the thermostat down too low when they go away.
“The little heat you save could cost you in broken pipes and water damage,” he said.
