The winter season is upon us and getting outside and enjoying the snow is a fun time, whether you are going for a hike, snowmobiling, sledding or skiing. I remind my family when planning an outdoor activity to take extra care because the weather can change at any time. If you and your family are enjoying the great outdoors here are few safety tips to keep in mind.
Use the buddy system, it provides security needed in case of an accident, mechanical breakdown or change in the weather conditions.
Consider carrying a charged cell phone or GPS in case emergency help is needed
Be prepared with the right outdoor apparel, boots and eye protection and helmets.
Check the weather conditions
Make sure your equipment is working in tip top condition before venturing to far from your home.
Have FUN !!!!
