Given that there were extreme cold-weather conditions, on Walpole Island in past few days, the Walpole Island Police Service is reminding the public of some of the best ways to stay safe during this harsh winter weather:

– Dress appropriately using layered clothing.

– Make sure someone knows where you are and when you are expected home

– Make sure someone knows your travel route to your destination and expected time of arrival.

– Carry a fully charged cell phone if possible

– Stay with your vehicle, keep it running if possible and ensure the windows are slightly opened.

– If you are warming yourself in a vehicle that is not driveable ensure the exhaust pipe is clear

– Be cautious in extreme weather conditions if you have any health issues

– Be cautious venturing out doors if you are taking medications that could impair you in any way

– Use caution with over the counter drugs, prescription medication or illegal drugs when venturing into extreme weather conditions
