Although winter comes as no surprise, staying warm and safe can be a challenge during extreme-cold conditions. Exposure to cold temperatures can have health risks such as hypothermia and frostbite. Stay safe and healthy by planning ahead. Prepare your home and cars. Prepare for power outages and outdoor activity. Check on older adults. Bring pets inside. For additional information on how to prepare for winter weather and prevent cold-related health problems, see the CDC Extreme Cold Guide and the Ready.gov Winter Storms & Extreme Cold guide.
