Get Ready for Winter
If severe weather strikes are you prepared at home, on the move and in your community? It takes just a few simple steps to get ready for winter.
In the last few years, we've seen it all - snow, floods and strong winds. And it doesn't take much for these to impact on our daily lives. Like being stuck indoors for a few days, or losing your power or water supply or even your phone connection.
Severe weather can strike at any time so taking action now will serve you well during winter, and all year round. Severe weather can cause a range of problems - but you can be ready for them. By doing a few small things now, you can save yourself a lot of trouble later on.
The ‘Get Ready for Winter’ website provides common sense advice on how individuals and communities can prepare for winter weather. The website will be updated throughout the winter to take account of the weather situation.
Further multiagency advice for getting prepared for winter can be found HERE.
Information and practical advice on Suffolk’s Warm Homes Healthy People project helping people to keep warm and well, and also how you can get involved in your local community are available on the Suffolk County Council website, www.suffolk.gov.uk, and also the Suffolk Community Emergency Preparedness Site, www.getpreparednow.co.uk/
