Winter weather safety tips

  • Stay indoors when possible.
  • Dress warmly in loose-fitting, layered, light-weight clothing.
  • Avoid overexertion. Cold weather puts added strain on the heart. If you do shovel snow, be sure to take frequent breaks.
  • Keep dry and change wet clothing frequently to prevent loss of body heat.
  • Don’t drive in bad weather if it’s not necessary. The leading cause of death during winter storms is transportation accidents.
  • Have your vehicle systems checked by a mechanic, and install good winter tires.
  • Maintain at least half a tank of gas at all times.
  • Keep an emergency supply kit in your car.
  • If you are stranded, stay in the car and hang a brightly-colored cloth on the radio antenna to draw attention
