Hartford Warming Centers: Winter 2019

 Health Tips to Stay Safe During Cold Weather

·         Wear several layers of loose-fitting, lightweight, warm clothing rather than one layer of heavy clothing.

·         Wear a hat and change wet clothes frequently to prevent loss of body heat.

·         Cover your mouth with a scarf to protect your lungs.

·         Watch for signs of hypothermia: uncontrollable shivering, memory loss, disorientation, incoherence, slurred speech, drowsiness, and apparent exhaustion.

·         If symptoms of hypothermia are detected, get the victim to a warm location, remove wet clothing, warm the center of the body first and give warm, non-alcoholic beverages if the victim is conscious. Get medical help as soon as possible.”
