KEEP DRY. Change wet clothing frequently to prevent a loss of body heat.
BE AWARE of the symptoms of medical cold emergencies. See “MEDICAL EMERGENCY” section of this guide for information on first aid during cold emergencies.
If outdoors, PREVENT medical cold emergencies by wearing warm, loose- fitting, lightweight clothing in several layers.
MINIMIZE TRAVEL. Drive only if it is absolutely necessary. Travel in the day; don’t travel alone; keep others informed of your schedule; stay on main roads and avoid back road shortcuts. Let someone know travel destination, travel route, and expected time of arrival at travel destination.
