As temperatures drop, the Texas Department of Insurance reminds Texas residents that colder weather can bring new hazards that are unique to this time of year. See the attached for tips to help keep your winter safe and insurance-claim free.

Home fires are more prevalent in winter. The use of space heaters results in more fires and fire fatalities than any other heating sources. Test your smoke alarms monthly. If you donít already have a home escape plan, make one and practice it. Your plan should include knowing two ways out of every room and having a designated meeting place outside and away from your house.
