Now that winter has officially arrived, it is important to remember that snow, icy conditions and dangerously cold temperatures can occur at any time. To protect you and your loved ones from the effects of harsh winter weather, follow these safety tips:
Keep an emergency supply kit in your home that includes a battery-powered radio with extra batteries, canned food and a manual can opener, flashlights and battery-powered lamps for power failures, wood for fireplaces, and rock salt to melt ice and sand to improve traction.
Make sure your car is in proper working condition and includes blankets, warm clothing, jumper cables and tools, bottled water, dried fruits and nuts, a first aid kit, a fire extinguisher, flashlights and batteries, a shovel and ice scraper.
Wear layers to protect yourself from the cold. A hat, scarf and mittens are also essential protection against winter weather.
