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.
