Be prepared for winter

As in past years, I am highlighting Scottish Water's Winter Campaign - here's an update from Scottish Water's Regional Community Manager to local councillors:

Dear Councillors

Scottish Water is launching its 2012 winter campaign to encourage our customers to be prepared and ensure homes and businesses across Scotland are protected and prepared for the winter.  Communities across the country are being urged to follow Scottish Water’s winter code - a set of simple steps to protect your pipes, be prepared and heat, insulate and protect your home and business.

The campaign, which is being supported for the fourth year running by Sean Batty, the STV weather forecaster, will be communicated through a range of channels including advertising, our winter leaflet and poster, videos, social media channels and partnerships with a range of organisations, such as the Scottish Government, landlord and housing associations and plumbers’ federation SNIPEF.

Scottish Water is also ensuring that we are well equipped and can continue to deliver the best service to our customers in whatever weather the winter months may bring.
