#1 Dangerous things about January storms.

JAN
15

For Barrie, January is known for having more snowfall than any of the other winter months. Constantly changing weather patterns, warm fronts followed by cold fronts off the lakes, and below freezing temperatures can make some terrible road conditions. Snow can quickly become ice pellets and blizzards can become white outs dangerously fast. Here are some things to keep in mind.

– Icy road conditions can cause injury or death for drivers.
– Prolonged exposure to the cold can cause hypothermia.
– It’s possible to have a heart attack while shovelling snow.
– Over 75% of injuries related to ice, snow, and cold weather is among males over 50 years old.
– About 25% of injures occur around the home.

Stay safe during January storms.
