Severe winter weather can lead to health and safety challenges. You may have to cope with
  • Cold related health problems, including frostbite and hypothermia
  • Household fires and carbon monoxide poisoning from space heaters and fireplaces
  • Unsafe driving conditions from icy roads
  • Power failures
  • Floods after snow and ice melt
Although there are no guarantees of safety during winter weather emergencies, you can take actions to protect yourself. You should have a disaster plan. Being prepared can help reduce fear, anxiety and losses.
