Be Winter Ready Campaign 2018
The annual ‘Be Winter Ready’ campaign https://www.winterready.ie/en has been launched by the National Emergency Co-ordination Committee (NECC). It offers practical advice and information on preparing for severe weather conditions over the coming months and where to get assistance.
“You, Your Community and the Winter” is the focus of this year’s initiative, with people being urged to keep an eye on vulnerable neighbours. It covers a number of areas including preparing homes, dealing with flooding, clearing snow from footpaths, keeping healthy and warm as well as driving tips in snow and icy conditions.
The NECC is warning people that during extreme weather events, everyday tasks can become more difficult and hazardous.
