Hazards: Very cold air and strong winds will combine to generate low wind chills. This will result in frost bite and lead to hypothermia if precautions are not taken.
- If you must go outside, dress appropriately, and wear a hat and gloves.
- Residents should also check on their neighbors, friends, and relatives, especially the elderly and those with disabilities, and access and functional needs during periods of extreme cold.
- Seniors, infants, people with chronic cardiovascular or lung conditions, people using alcohol or drugs & people with cognitive disabilities (like dementia, serious mental illness or developmental disability) are at increased risk.
- If you lose power and have a disability or access needs, or use Life Sustaining Equipment (LSE) and need immediate assistance, please dial 9-1-1.
