Strategies for This Week’s Deep Freeze
Parts of the US will be colder than the Antarctic this week. No joke! How prepared are your properties and what deep-freeze strategies have you employed to protect your properties?
Temperatures in the Upper Midwest are predicted to range between single digits to low teens, with dangerous wind chills between 20 and 30 degrees below zero. This Arctic blast can affect heating, water pipes, and fire-protection systems. Guarding against major property damage and business interruption (not to mention irate tenants) can be addressed through special action plans when a deep freeze is underway.
