With the most recent downfall of snow, it’s apparent that winter wants to make itself known. The holiday season represents one of the most beautiful times of the year, but it isn’t without its own set of challenges when it comes to the weather that accompanies it. The best thing to do is get (and stay) prepared.
Here are some important tips to remember to stay safe this winter:
‘Stay safe indoors
Winter is a busy season for fires in Canada. That’s why it’s important to be mindful of fire prevention and safety. Make sure you have working smoke alarms, don’t leave burning candles unattended and if a pot catches fire while cooking, put a lid on it.
Check your family emergency kit
You likely have some basic emergency kit items already in your home, such as a flashlight, battery-operated radio, food, water and blankets. The key is to make sure they are organized, easy to find and easy to carry (in a suitcase with wheels or in a backpack) in case you need to evacuate your home.
Keep an emergency kit in your vehicle
Prepare an emergency kit and keep it in your vehicle. Refresh the supplies for winter. For example, add an extra blanket or new food items.’ (source: getprepared.ca)
