Tips to stay safe during cold weather

  • Stock up on essentials, food and water in advance to limit the need to go outside.
  • Limit your time outside. If you need to go outside, wear layers of warm clothing. Keep all skin covered. Watch for signs of frostbite and hypothermia.  
  • Signs of frostbite include: loss of feeling and color around the face, fingers and toes, numbness, white or grayish-yellow skin, firm or waxy skin.  
  • Signs of hypothermia include: shivering, exhaustion, confusion, fumbling hands, memory loss, slurred speech or drowsiness.  
  • Avoid carbon monoxide poisoning. Only use generators and grills outdoors and away from windows. Never heat your home with a gas stovetop, oven, or kerosene heaters that are not properly vented.  
  • Reduce the risk of a heart attack. Avoid overexertion when shoveling snow.  
  • Check on neighbors. Older adults and young children are more at risk in extreme cold.  
  • Pets are also at risk for cold weather injuries and should be kept indoors.  
  • If travel is necessary, keep a full tank of gas and an emergency preparedness kit in your vehicle. Put warm clothing, such as gloves, blankets and hats, and a cell phone charger in your kit.

Please be safe if you must venture outdoors.
