Exposed skin can become frostbitten in minutes. Prolonged exposure can result in hypothermia. Find out how to protect yourself from and identify these conditions.

During extreme cold weather, we recommend:

  • Checking the weather conditions
  • Limiting your time outside
  • Covering exposed skin by dressing in layers with a wind-resistant and waterproof outer layer
  • Wearing waterproof boots, a hat and mittens instead of gloves.
  • Moving around to keep yourself warm
  • Taking shelter from the wind

Some people are more vulnerable to the effects of cold weather, including:

  • Infants and young children
  • The elderly
  • Outdoor workers
  • People with chronic medical conditions or underlying infections
  • People taking certain medications (including beta blockers)
  • Winter sport enthusiasts
  • Homeless persons and those lacking shelter, proper clothing, or food

Please check in with vulnerable family members and neighbours when there is a period of extreme cold.  

Our offices and clinics will be closed on Monday, Feb. 15, 2016 for the Family Day holiday. Regular services resume Tuesday, Feb. 16, 2016.
