Protect yourself from the cold

Posted: Updated:

Being exposed to the cold temperatures can put you at risk of hypothermia.

Elderly people and children are at a higher risk. Signs of hypothermia include confusion, fatigue, slurred speech, a weak pulse and slow, shallow breathing. If you experience these signs, you should get indoors as soon as possible, remove wet clothing and call 911.
