Safety Tips For Winter Time

Posted on December 13, 2011

According to news sources, with snow now coming to San Benandino and San Gabriel Mountains, those venturing out to enjoy the winter season should keep in mind these following safety tips to keep safe.

Make sure you are able to identify the early symptoms of hypothermia, as the weather can chance drastically in a short period of time. Of course, it’s always better to just be prepared for the cold, so pack accordingly.

Know where you are stepping. It is important to remember to always keep away from icy surfaces as well as steep slopes, as serious injury can result from just one slip.

Make sure to drive your vehicle to the side of the roadway if involved in an accident, yet only if it is safe to do so. This can help prevent other vehicles from crashing into the wreckage, thereby keeping the accident from getting any worst. Remember to contact 911 right away.

If you find the need to install any sort of traction devices to your tires while on the roadway, make sure you do so in an area that is as clear from traffic as possible to prevent a potential accident from taking place.
