Press Release- Toy Town
Several immediate safety concerns with the building currently occupied by Toy Town Antiques were identified by reputable and licensed third-party engineers. The Town of Snow Hill has made several attempts to work with Toy Town Antiques to address these safety concerns in a timely manner, but unfortunately have not been able to reach a solution. The Town of Snow Hill has a duty to ensure the safety of the public. Therefore, it could not allow the dangerous conditions to go unremedied any longer. The matter is now before the court, and, as such, no further comment will be forthcoming.
Indoor pipes can freeze, depending on such variables as outside temperature, inside temperature, insulation and placement in the building. Pipes in attics, above ceilings, in crawl spaces and basements, and near exterior walls are highly vulnerable to freezing.
The temperatures that we are experiencing and may possibly continue to experience put your pipes at risk. The following are some tips for risk control:
* Keep exterior doors closed, even if not in the immediate vicinity of pipes
* Maintain heat in buildings at all times. No area with piping should be allowed to fall below 40 degrees
* Shut off water lines and drain all pipes if the building is to be left unattended for an extended period
IMPORTANT: Identify the main water shut-off valve(s) and know where they are in case of a pipe break.
For any buildings considered vacant, idle or unoccupied, all of the above issues and recommended practices apply to these types of buildings. In fact, because they are rarely used and less frequently visited, an extra effort should be made to ensure that all measures and precautions are taken. During severe weather, daily visits, if possible, should be made.
