COLD WEATHER PLAN LAUNCHED BY MET OFFICE

Dear Readers and Followers,

Better to be safe than sorry, so thought this would be useful information for you and your loved ones. So can you share and care to as many people as possible so they can be safe this Winter?

Thanks Ian  

The Met Office, Department of Health, and Health Protection Agency have launched the  Cold Weather plan for England 2012 which aims to prepare for, alert people to and prevent the major avoidable effects on health during periods of severe cold in England.

The Cold Weather Plan, which has run successfully since 2011, has been developed by the Department of HealthMet Office and Health Protection Agency, and supported by AgeUK. The purpose of the Cold Weather Plan is to help raise awareness of the dangers of cold weather on health with both the public and professionals alike. It spells out what preparations both individuals and organisations could make to reduce health risks and includes specific measures to protect at-risk groups.

The Cold Weather Plan will be supported again this year by the Met Office Cold Weather Alert Service, which notifies frontline staff across the health, social care, Community and Voluntary sectors, and AgeUK, as well as the general public across England, when cold weather could impact on people’s’ health.

Although winter weather and snow can be fun, they are also associated with an increase in illnesses and injuries. Severe cold weather can be particularly dangerous for vulnerable groups such as older people and those with serious illnesses.

Met Office figures show that the winter of 2010/11 saw the coldest December in 100 years. Some areas saw temperatures fall as low as -10 and -20 °C overnight. Winter 2011/12 was milder but there were several cold snaps, notably at the start of February 2012.

The Met Office Cold Weather Alert Service runs from 1 November 2012 to 31 March 2013 and has five alert levels that depend on the severity of conditions. Together, the plan and alerts aim to prepare, alert and prevent the effects of winter weather on people’s health by helping keep people well.

Further details of how to prepare and reduce the effects of extreme weather conditions on your health can be found on THEIR website LINK BELOW!

Cold Weather Plan Launched Today just click link and a new page will open and take you to the sight information.

Link to information above: You can sign up as l have done for email alerts to your area of the UK at MET OFFICE ALERTS  

Be safe and sound this winter.
