Securing Cabins for Winter

Lake residents who close up their cabins for the winter should take the following precautions:

  • Drain and shut off all pipes to outside faucets.
  • Leave inside faucets dripping and cabinets open to expose plumbing to warmer air.
  • Take all high-valued items, such as televisions, VCRs, stereos and the likes with you.
  • Consider installing a silent security alarm, even though it requires leaving on your electricity.
  • Most importantly, have a neighbor check your home
    occasionally to ensure that it is safely secured.
