Extreme Cold Safety Tips
We took a visit over to the MEMA site which you can find on the mass.gov website
Winter in Massachusetts almost always includes periods of extreme cold weather. Exposure to cold can cause frostbite or hypothermia and has the potential to become life-threatening. Although anyone can suffer from cold-related health issues, some people are at greater risk than others, such as:
- Older adults
- Young children
- Those who are sick; and
- Those without adequate shelter
- If you know of a neighbor who is on their own you might want to pay a visit to make sure they are ok.
