WINTER PREPAREDNESS

Winter is approaching and being prepared for the dangers winter weather can bring is very important.  To prepare for winter emergencies here are a few tips that could minimize winter weather hazards:

·         Stay indoors (It can become very dangerous especially with the various temperature changes).

·         Be careful when walking on snowy, icy walkway (Snow and ice makes it easy to fall).

·         Stay dry (Frequently change wet clothes to preserve body heat).

·         Limit driving when necessary. Try to travel in the day with a reliable passenger.

·         Let friends and family know your destination and route in case of an emergency.

Tips for Seniors

 Seniors need to keep important items ready when needed including:

 ·      Wheelchair batteries

 ·       Oxygen tanks

 ·       Catheters

 ·       Daily medications

 ·       Food for pets

 The goal is to prepare for emergency situations before they happen.

 Dress for the Weather

·         When going outside wearing appropriate clothing is important. Wear layers of light warm clothing to retain the heat.

·         Wear mittens instead of gloves (Mittens are warmer).

·         Wear a hat to keep your head warm.

·         Wear a scarf to cover your mouth and lungs from the harsh winter winds.

Visit the website www.Ready.gov for additional information. Make sure you and your family are prepared before a winter storm strikes.
