Regional Development Minister, Danny Kennedy MLA and Sara Venning, Chief Executive of NI Water, are urging the people of Coleraine to ‘Beat the Freeze’’ at the launch of the Winter Preparations Campaign at Parliament Buildings .
The message calls on the public to check that homes and businesses are prepared for the cold weather conditions.
Minister Kennedy said: “The only thing we can be really certain of when it comes to our weather is that can be totally unpredictable! We can, however, prepare for whatever winter brings by checking our homes and properties are well protected.
“Simply, take a few minutes to ensure that water pipes are protected and well insulated, if not, then take action now and potentially save money, time and the inconvenience of dealing with a burst pipe.”
