Winter Weather Safety

 

It’s a new year, and Mother Nature can be unforgiving in the winter months. Here are some tips to protect against frostbite:

  • Dress properly by protecting your hands, feet, nose and ears.
  • Bundle up in warm, layered, loose-fitting clothing.
  • If you are doing activities outside, periodically go inside to warm up.
  • Remember that wet skin and clothing will increase your risk of getting frostbite, so try and keep your skin and clothes as dry as possible.
  • Do not drink alcohol before or during exposure to cold temperatures; your body may not be able to realize that it is getting too cold.
  • Avoid smoking in cold weather. The nicotine affects your blood vessels and increases your chance of developing frostbite.
  • Keep a close eye on your body; if your skin begins to turn red, it may be an indication that frostbite is developing. Head indoors immediately and get warm.
