Avoid Bringing Disease Into The Home
Try these steps to lessen the chances of bringing the sickness home and putting your family at risk.
Shoveling Snow Safely
Snow shoveling is a vigorous task that involves a high level of physical exertion that can lead to physical injuries or heart attacks. Reduce the risk of injury or heart strain by safely shoveling.
Avoiding CO Poisoning
When power outages occur, using alternative fuel or electricity sources for heating, cooling, or cooking can cause CO to build up. This can poison people and animals inside a home, garage, or camper.
Heating with Firewood
Many West Virginia households rely on wood to provide local, sustainable, and cost effective heat during the winter. For the best results, homeowners need to select and prepare their wood carefully.
Fall leaves can be beautiful, but can also cause problems for homeowners. Leaves and other debris can clog rain gutters and may lead to home damage in areas around windows, doors and the foundation.

Snow & Roof Overload
Excessive snow loads can damage our home and farm structures. All snow is not created equal. Snow can have a range of moisture contents, and moisture content directly controls the weight the snow.
