Severe weather challenges all of us. Activities that we take for granted can become difficult or even hazardous when severe weather occurs. However, by taking some simple steps you can reduce the impact of such events. This winter-ready booklet gives information on being prepared, providing practical advice for coping during episodes of severe weather, as well as giving contact details of organisations and agencies that can provide guidance and assistance.
The booklet was prepared by the Government Task Force on Emergency Planning.
The main message is simple – be prepared, stay safe and know where to find help should you need it.
An electronic version of this booklet is available on the website http://www.winterready.ie
An Irish language edition is also available. The website acts as an entry site to many useful websites. During severe weather events information will also be available on Aertel page 592.
