The National Weather Service announced a Storm Caution in regard to snow for MD, DE, PA, NJ and NY.

6 Methods to Be Safe in a Wintry Storm

 

  1. Keep indoors if you can until the storm has passed.

  2. Be extra cautious when driving or walking – it’s slippery and accidents can occur!

  3. Prior to leaving by car, notify a relative or friend about the road course you will be taking, your destination and approximate time when you will reach it. This way, it will be easier to track you if you need help.

  4. Should you experience the signs of frostbite - numbness and a loss of color to your nose, ears, hands or feet - cover the affected area. Avoid rubbing affected area and seek immediate medical assistance.

  5. Avoid heart attack risk: be sure to only shovel light weights of snow, as well as to take timeouts during the activity.

  6. If your garments get wet, change into dry clothes as soon as possible to prevent hypothermia.
