When going outside this winter to commute, please keep the following in mind:

  • Wear appropriate outdoor clothing
    • Layer up! Better to remove clothing than not have enough
    • Wear waterproof boots. Skin gets colder faster when wet
    • Protect ears, face, and hands with a hat and gloves
  • Warm up muscles before going outside to do any physical work or activity by stretching
  • Prevent any slips or falls by putting down sand, salt, or even cat litter on any icy patches

Prepare Car: Winter Driving Safety Tips

  • Maintain antifreeze levels
  • Check tire tread and tire pressure
    • Changing to all-weather or snow tires at the beginning of the season if possible

    • Don't forget a cell phone charger or portable charger
  • Nonperishable food and water
  • Blanket
  • Spare warm clothes
