Dress for Extreme-Weather Emergencies

If you must go outdoors in extreme winter conditions, the Centers for Disease Control says, dress for the weather. Appropriate outdoor clothing includes layers of light, warm clothing; windproof coats, mittens, hats and scarves; and waterproof boots (all of which can be found at thrift stores supplied by ClothingDonations.org). Take a buddy if you plan on any outdoor recreation. If you must travel, let people know your route and estimated time of arrival, and if you are stranded in your car, make it visible to rescuers. Stay with the car unless safety is less than 100 yards away, and run the motor and heater for 10 minutes per hour, opening a window slightly to let in fresh air. #WinterTips
