Cold weather is back – reminder from SMDHU

0

When winter weather drops to very low temperatures, staying warm and safe can become a challenge. Exposures to cold temperatures, whether indoors or outside, can cause serious or life-threatening health problems. During extreme cold, those most at risk include:

  • infants under one year of age
  • individuals 65 years of age or older
  • the homeless
  • outdoor workers
  • sport enthusiasts (skiers, ice skaters)
  • people living in homes that are poorly insulated or without heat, and people living in homes without power (usually due to other weather-related events such as a winter storm)
