During cold alerts and cold weather, the following is recommended:

  • Dress appropriately when going outside – frostbite can occur within minutes.
  • Cover exposed skin using multiple layers of loose-fitting clothes with a wind-resistant outer layer, a hat, mittens, and scarf.
  • If you get wet, change into dry clothing as soon as possible. You lose heat faster when you’re wet.
  • Drink warm fluids – but NO alcohol or caffeinated beverages, as they cause your body to lose heat faster.
  • Keep moving – especially your hands and feet.
  • Take shelter from the wind to reduce wind chill exposure.
  • Keep your vehicle well-maintained.
  • Prepare emergency kits for your home and car.
  • Always be on the lookout for signs of frostbite and hypothermia.
  • Plan ahead and check the weather forecast!

Stay warm and safe, Oakville!
