Winter Weather Safety Tips 

When temperatures drop significantly below normal, staying warm and safe can be a challenge. Learn how to prepare for winter storms, prevent cold-related health problems, and protect yourself during all stages of a winter storm.

Winter Storms
Winter storms can bring cold temperatures, power failures, loss of communication services, and icy roads. This can make being outside dangerous, so you should limit your time outside. Although staying indoors as much as possible can help reduce the risk of car crashes and falls on the ice, you may also face hazards inside your home. These could include: 1) cold temperatures due to power failure or poor heating system, 2) fires or carbon monoxide poisoning caused by space heaters and fireplaces. 

Stay Safe and Plan Ahead
Exposure to cold temperatures, whether indoors or outside, can cause serious or life-threatening health problems. Infants and older adults are particularly at risk, but anyone can be affected. To keep yourself and your family safe, you should know how to prepare your home and your car, how to prevent cold-related health problems like hypothermia and frostbite, and what to do if a cold-weather health emergency arises.
