ATTLEBORO, MA, January 19, 2012—Here is some information provided by the Emergency Care Center (ECC) staff at Sturdy Memorial Hospital, including tips from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which can help you remain safe and healthy throughout the winter season: · Dress properly for the weather. Make sure exposed skin is covered, especially in young children because their skin is more sensitive. Wear layers of clothing and a hat to keep your body insulated. · Learn the symptoms of hypothermia (shivering, exhaustion, drowsiness, confusion, fumbling, and slurred speech) and seek medical attention right away. · When it comes to driving, never drink and drive, always wear a seatbelt, and avoid traveling when the weather service has issued advisories. Service your automobile’s radiator and maintain antifreeze level. Check the tire tread or, if necessary, replace tires with all-weather or snow tires. Keep your gas tank full to avoid ice in the tank and fuel lines.
