People are being urged to check on their neighbours after the Met Office issued a cold weather alert.
West Sussex County Council put out the warning with temperatures set to dip below freezing over the coming days.
A spokesman said that health risks to the young, elderly and those with medical conditions may be increased as a result.
It is recommended that homes are kept to a minimum of 21c in the day and 18c at night.
The local authority added that mobile phones should be nearby and that vulnerable neighbours are checked.
