Cold Weather Safety Tips

The Central MA Regional Public Health Alliance (CMRPHA) is offering some cold weather reminders. 

Extreme Cold Safety Tips:

  • Stay indoors as much as possible, especially during extreme cold and high winds.

  • Check on elderly friends and neighbors often.

  • Avoid caffeine – dehydration occurs quickly in cold, dry weather. Keep well hydrated, especially when exerting yourself.

  • Cover exposed skin and be on the lookout for frostbite. Symptoms of frostbite include:
    • Loss of feeling and white/pale skin on fingers, toes, ears, and nose.
  • Keep pets indoors for protection against the cold – they are sensitive just like us!
