Chicago Blizzard 2011 & Recovery: Safety Tips

Pam Flaherty, Vice President of Swartz Brothers Insurance and her team sent us these great tips regarding the 2011 Blizzard recovery. Deb Reinhart Interior Design Group is please to share these tips with you.  Please read below for more details. Dear Deb Reinhart Interior Design Group,

With the snow storm of the last 2 days, and the freezing temperatures, I wanted to share a few things with you.


  • Check to make sure your dry vent is not blocked by the snow. A blocked vent could lead to a fire or CO2 back up into your home.
  • With the strong winds, your attic vents may have let in snow. To that extent, you might want to check your attic to make sure you don’t have snow.
  • With the piles of snow everywhere and freezing temperature, please take your time driving.

Stay safe and warm!
