Get ready for winter

ready for winter logoHow prepared for winter weather are you? 

Recently Scotland experienced some of the coldest weather and the worst snow and ice that we have seen for many years.   For many there are vivid memories of the widespread disruption to travel,  burst pipe misery and damage to properties all over Scotland including businesses.

An average winter is likely to include cold snaps and snowfalls, ice, storms, high winds, heavy rain and fog, so the Scottish Government has published information to help you and your family get prepared early.  

Ready Scotland (http://www.readyscotland.org/) contains practical advice and simple steps you can take to protect yourself, your family, your community and your business from the worst effects of all kinds of weather.

The Scottish Government also wants to hear from members of the public who have any experiences to share with others about how to deal with winter weather. You can send an email to ReadyScotland@scotland.gsi.gov.uk. to pass on your top tips for coping with winter weather to others who need help.Are you ready for winter - house, car, dog cartooon

Local authorities across Scotland take considerable steps to maintain public services and keep roads clear, whatever the weather.  But the key to being properly prepared is what you can do, in your own home, and with your neighbours, to minimise the effects of winter weather where  you live and work.  So don’t get caught out this winter. 

Visit http://www.readyscotland.org/ today and start getting ready for winter.
