Avoiding Frostbite and Hypothermia

With extreme winter weather chilling much of the country, the Red Cross cautions all Canadians to take a few extra steps to avoid frostbite and hypothermia.  Whether participating in outdoor winter activities or traveling, it is important to be prepared and know what to do should something go wrong.

"In weather like this, it is crucial that people prepare adequately before heading outside," says Rick Caissie, National First Aid Manager for Canadian Red Cross.  "A little extra thought can make the difference between a safe, enjoyable experience or severe discomfort that may result in injury."
