Safety in Cold Weather

February can be one of the coldest months of the year. When the temperature bottoms out, make sure you’re prepared. Limit your exposure to the elements, especially in wet or windy conditions. The National Safety Council recommends that you bundle up with layers of loose clothing and cover your extremities. To prevent frostbite and protect against a loss of body temperature which can result in hypothermia, wear socks that keep feet warm and dry, thick mittens to protect fingers and hats and scarves that shield your head and face.
