The weather is expected to dip back into the teens later this week, so here’s a reminder about winter safety tips:

  • Dress in layers.
  • Wear a hat.
  • Wear non-skid boots.
  • For safety and visibility, wear a brightly colored scarf or hat.
  • Cover exposed skin with sunscreen; you can burn in the winter.
  • Do not shovel snow if you are out of shape.
  • Use rock salt or de-icing compounds on steps and sidewalks.
  • Do not put your hand into the snow blower.
  • Avoid driving in snow or ice storms.
  • Limit time outdoors in freezing temperatures.
