Please follow this advice if you have to go out in the snow and #ice 🚑❄️🌨☃️🌬

With it being really cold with lots of snow and ice, please consider whether you really need to go out and about.  If you do, there are a few things you can do to stay safe and avoid having to call 999:

  • Make sure that you’re well prepared by wearing plenty of clothes; wear lots of layers as this will be more effective at keeping you warm, rather than one big coat.
  • Put on gloves, a warm hat or put your hood up as we lose lots of heat through our head.
  • Wear sensible shoes with a good grip on the sole – surfaces will bee slippery and the last thing you want is to fall and hurt yourself
  • Could you help an elderly neighbour or relative so that they don’t need to go out in this weather – they are at a much higher risk of falling and hurting themselves badly

We’re expecting to be really busy, so please, help us to help you by keeping yourself warm and safe.
