Staying safe in extremely cold weather

We have been experiencing some extremely cold weather in the past month. I have also heard about unusually cold weather in other areas as well. I must say I don’t enjoy the cold weather as I am not a fan of winter sports and activities. When you are caught in a deep freeze like the one we are in, it is important to exercise caution and stay safe.

It is important to check the temperature before you leave home and ensure you are dressed appropriately from head to toe. Layering and warm footwear, head wear and gloves are essential to preventing frostbite and other illnesses. While some of us can stay indoors  during extreme weather, others have to work, go to school and attend to other essentials. When outside ensure you limit your exposure and get indoors as quickly as possible. This is especially important for young children and older adults.

If you are living in a warm climate, enjoy your weather. If you are experiencing extreme cold weather you can still enjoy yourself but take care to protect yourself and your loved ones as frostbite or slips and falls can occur in seconds.
