Linda Fabiani MSP for East Kilbride has welcomed a campaign from Scottish Water encouraging people to prepare for winter.
Linda said “Scottish Water have launched a great campaign to ensure we are all ready for whatever winter decides to throw at us! I would encourage East Kilbride residents to take advantage of the helpful tips and information provided to prevent damage to pipes which can occur when the temperature drops”
Scottish Water is launching its new campaign to encourage our customers to ensure homes and businesses across Scotland are protected and prepared for the winter. Communities throughout the country are being urged to follow Scottish Water’s winter code – a set of simple steps to protect your pipes, be prepared and heat, insulate and protect your home and business.
The campaign, which is being supported by Sean Batty, the STV weather forecaster, is being spread through a range of measures including advertising, leaflets, videos, social media channels and partnerships with a range of bodies, such as landlord and housing associations and plumbers’ federation SNIPEF.
Scottish Water is also implementing various initiatives to ensure it is well equipped to continue to deliver the best service it can in the event of another severe winter.
Follow Scottish Water’s winter code and be prepared for winter!
We’re launching our winter campaign to encourage customers in communities across Scotland to follow our winter code – protect your pipes, be prepared and heat, insulate and protect your home.
We are also urging holiday homeowners, businesses, agents and landlords to take steps to heat, insulate and protect properties and any vacant commercial properties.
