Cold Weather Safety

 Blog contributed by Dr. Joseph Cincotta, primary care physician

As we enter this week we are anticipating another series of very cold days.  Here are some points on staying safe during this challenging time.


  • If possible try to stay out of the cold weather.
  • If you need to be outside try to avoid getting wet.  The combination of cold and wet increases the rate of loss of body heat.  If you do get wet, try to get inside quickly and change into dry clothes.
  • Dress in multiple layers, as opposed to one.  The layers help to keep heat in.
  • Wear mittens instead of gloves, if possible.  They will help to keep your hand and fingers warmer.
  • Wear a hat (Yes, your mother was right – keep that winter hat on when you are outside).
  • Cover as much of your skin as possible to keep the cold off your skin.  This helps to reduce the chance of frostbite.
  • Breathe in through your nose when you are out in the cold.  That helps to warm the air you are breathing in.
  • Check your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
  • If you use an electric heater, use extreme caution.  Keep the heater away from curtains and flammable items, and be sure to turn it off and unplug it when you go to bed.
  • Do not run your car in a garage attached to your house – even if the garage door is open.
  • Make sure your car tailpipe is free of blockage by snow when you do run your car.
  • For those with pets – do not keep your pets outside in cold weather.
  • For those of you who are interested in more information we are providing access to a document from the CDC on how to prepare for and deal with extremely cold weather.

  4. Hi,
    Thank you for this very helpful post. During winter as you said, It is very important to take care of our skin too. The chances of our skin to get itchy, dry, red and cracked is much more in winter than in the other seasons. So we should use good skincare products suitable to our skin type as a skincare aid. It is always better to choose dermatologically recommended brands similar to Cetaphil products for our skin protection.
