Cold weather

Cold weather

It's cold outside,
The snow is falling,
It's time for our kids to have fun.
Here are 5 safety tips to follow:

(1) Layer up. Dressing in layers helps insulate the body without overheating. The layer closest to the skin should be a moisture wicking material.This material pulls the sweat away from your body and prevents you from overheating.
(2) Warm up. After coming inside, take off all wet clothing immediately and put on fresh, dry clothes. Be sure to cover the wrists, toes and ankles to help keep body heat trapped. A cup of hot chocolate helps as well to warm up your hands.
(3) All helmets are not created equal. Snow sports-related head injuries – like concussions – are becoming more frequent. Particularly in the 7-17 year old range, making helmets a must according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. The helmet should be approved and meet the required safety recommendations for that particular sport. The helmet should fit comfortably, but snug, on the head without movement forward or backward.
(4) Take frequent breaks. Playing in the snow can be a lot of fun – but there is a smart way to do it. Be sure to take breaks every 30-40 minutes.
(5) Beware of the danger. When you check on kids, take a look at their skin. If their skin is pale, grey or blistering on the fingers, ears, nose or toes, it could be frostbite. Submerge the affected area under running warm (not hot!) water for 15-30 minutes. Shivering, slurred speech and clumsiness may be a sign of hypothermia. If you think your child has hypothermia, call 911 immediately.
