Cold Weather Safety Tips

The Stamford Department of Health & Social Services reminds all citizens of the following tips to stay safe during extreme cold:

*Dress warmly, and in layers, even if you are just making a short trip to the mailbox.  If you fall or a door locks behind you, you could be exposed for a longer period of time than you planned.  Cover your skin.  When the wind chill brings the temperature well below zero, be sure to cover your skin.  In extreme cold, skin exposed to the cold air can get frostbite in just a few minutes.  

* Know the signs of frostbite and hypothermia and seek medical assistance if you have these signs:

-Symptoms of frostbite can include: loss of feeling and loss of color and usually happens on the nose, ears, cheeks, chin, fingers or toes.

-Symptoms of hypothermia in adults can include shivering, exhaustion, confusion, fumbling hands, memory loss, drowsiness, or slurred speech.

-In infants, symptoms of hypothermia can include bright red, cold skin and low energy.
