Safe Winter-Spring Tips

A few simple steps will help prepare  for a safe winter in the outdoors or during winter power outages:

  • Have a winter driving survival kit in your car that includes a shovel, blanket, extra clothing and footwear.  See Winter Auto Tips for Safety
  • In a power outage, use flashlights or battery-operated lanterns instead of candles or hurricane lamps. If you must use a candle, place it in a secure holder, cover it with a glass chimney, and keep it away from children and pets.
  • If you must be outside during cold weather or a snowstorm, avoid overexertion, wear several layers of clothing, wear waterproof and insulated boots and regularly check for frostbite.
  • You can still be safe and enjoy winter outdoors...check recommendations for safety about your favourite winter sport
