A deep freeze with dangerous wind chill is upon us.  Sioux Falls Fire Rescue offers cold weather safety tips!

Do not venture out if you do not have to.  If you do go out, limit your exposure and know your limitations.  Dress in several layers and wear a waterproof and/or windproof outer layer.

Frostbite is a serious condition caused by long exposure to the cold.  If left untreated, this may result in the actual freezing of an extremity.  DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REWARM A FROSTBITTEN EXTREMITY BY RUBBING IT. Rewarming must be done gradually and in an emergency department.

If you anticipate being out in the elements for an extended period of time, do not smoke or consume alcohol.

The very young and elderly tend to be prone to cold-related injuries. It is important to monitor children and to regularly check on elderly relatives or neighbors.
