All Safety Tips

Shivering matters

Do not ignore shivering. It’s an important first sign that the body is losing heat. Persistent shivering is a signal to return indoors.

Stay dry

Wet clothing chills the body rapidly.


Wear several loose fitting layers that hold body heat and don’t absorb moisture.

Cold Weather Gear

Wear a hat, scarf, mittens, water resistant coat and boots.

Stay in the car

If you are stranded, it is safest to stay in your car.

Road safety

Avoid traveling on ice-covered roads, overpasses, and bridges if at all possible.
