Snow and ice form hazards around your house. Avoid injury by taking precautions after storms arrive:

Protect your trees. Snowfall and windy weather may break tree limbs, causing damage to your home and possibly endangering people and pets. Use a broom to brush away snow after it falls. Don't shake trees; weak or frozen areas might break. Be sure to trim back branches close to the house.

Clear paths. Keep walkways and drives slip-resistant by shoveling (or snow blowing) regularly. Use ice melt that is safe for plants and pets to provide traction, including the steps to your home.

The trek is part of an initiative called the Sahara Desert Challenge for Shelter, which aims to raise $1 million for The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation. Each trekker has to raise a minimum of $5,000 in order to participate, all of which goes directly to funding women’s shelters and violence prevention programs across Canada.
