As the temperatures get colder, make sure you know how to stay warm. Don’t get caught winging it! The CDC has cute penguins with winter preparedness tips to help you be safe and healthy this winter.
Stay Chill around Ice
Walking on ice is dangerous and can cause serious falls on driveways, steps, and porches. Use rock salt or sand to melt the ice on driveways and sidewalks.If walking on ice can’t be avoided, walk like a penguin! Bend your back slightly and point your feet out – this increases your center of gravity. Stay flat-footed and take small steps or even shuffle for more stability. Keep your arms out to your sides to help balance.
