Winter Is Here!!

 

Winter Safety Tips

·         Be sure to dress properly for the weather, including a warm hat, scarf, coat, gloves, socks and water-resistant shoes or boots.

·         Keep your cellphone thoroughly charged in case of power outages.

·         When walking at night, wear outer clothing colors that contrasts with the white snow.

·         When walking during the day, wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from the sun’s glare.

 

Supplies You Should Have Prior to a Snow Storm:

·         Battery-powered radio to receive weather reports and emergency information in case of power outages.

·         Flashlight and extra batteries stored.

·         Extra food and plenty of water bottles. High-energy food, such as dried fruit or candy, and food requiring no cooking or refrigeration are best.

·         Special supplies (such as medications) for seniors, family members with disabilities, infants, children and pets.

·         First-aid supplies.

·         At least a three-day supply of water (one gallon per person, per day). Store in sealed, unbreakable containers.

·         A three-to-five-day supply of non-perishable canned food and a non-electric can opener.

·         Working fire extinguisher and smoke detector.

·         Check to see if your Snow shovels are in proper shape to shovel out your car.
