Winter weather and ice can disrupt daily routines and if not careful, can be very dangerous.
Based upon where you live, you may need to make important decisions in advance about how your family will handle this emergency situation. Develop an emergency plan based upon your family's needs and establish an emergency kit.
If exposed to cold weather, watch for signs of frostbite and hypothermia—slurred speech, confusion, shivering that will not stop, or body temperature of 95 degrees Fahrenheit or below. Seek medical attention for persons showing these symptoms.
