Freezing Temperatures

Click Here to Add a Title

Understanding:

  • Frostbite is a result of the blood vessels in your body constricting in response to the cold in an effort to supply blood to the core of your body and its vital organs. Because blood is needed for every cell in your body when the blood is deprived, those cells in the body parts exposed to the extreme cold begin to die. Frostbite can be identified by the loss of feeling and a white or pale appearance in your fingers, toes, nose and ear lobes. Uncovered fingers can freeze up to 8 times faster than a human cheek, and the nose can freeze 3 times faster. This is why it is important to keep fingers and parts of your face (ear lobes, nose) well covered in extreme cold weather.

  • Hypothermia is a condition brought on when the body temperature drops to less than 95 deg F. Symptoms of hypothermia include uncontrollable shivering, slow speech, memory lapses, frequent stumbling, drowsiness, and exhaustion.

Preparing:

  • Dress according to the weather.
  • Draft guards help to prevent cold air from seeping in from under doors and windows
  • Keep your heat turned up, even if you are away from home and insulate pipes. Even if heat is maintained in a home, freezing temperatures can still cause your pipes to freeze, resulting in them bursting and water damage to your property.
  • These owners were away from home when the pipes above their garage burst due to freezing temperatures...

In the Event of:

  • Watch for signs of frostbite or hypothermia when outdoors during extreme cold weather.
  • If frostbite or hypothermia is suspected, begin warming the person slowly and seek immediate medical assistance. Warm the person's trunk first. Use your own body heat to help. Arms and legs should be warmed last because stimulation of the limbs can drive cold blood toward the heart and lead to heart failure. Put the person in dry clothing and wrap their entire body in a blanket.

  • Never give a frostbite or hypothermia victim something with caffeine in it (like coffee or tea) or alcohol. Caffeine, a stimulant, can cause the heart to beat faster and hasten the effects the cold has on the body. Alcohol, a depressant, can slow the heart and also hasten the ill effects of cold body temperatures. Caffeine will also constrict your blood vessels making it harder for your body to get blood to the areas that already have a compromised blood supply.

Snow, Freezing Rain, Sleet & Ice

Youtube video thumbnail

Click Here to Add a Title

Understanding:

  • Snow occurs when precipitation falls and the ground to cloud temperature remains below freezing, allowing the precipitation to remain in ice crystal form.
  • Both freezing rain and sleet occur by the same general process.  The difference between these two wintry precipitation types depends on the thickness of the layer of freezing and warm air.
  • Freezing rain occurs when the layer of freezing air is so thin that the raindrops do not have enough time to freeze before reaching the ground.  The water freezes on contact with the surface, creating a coating of ice on whatever the raindrops contact.
  • Sleet is frozen raindrops and occurs when the layer of freezing air along the surface is thicker. This causes the raindrops to freeze before reaching the ground.

In the Event of:

  • Keep an eye on developing weather and know whether your county is under a Snow Emergency before heading out.
  • Contact your employer to find out whether you need to report for work.
  • If you do not need to go anywhere, don't. Just sit back and enjoy some hot cocoa and a good movie or book.
  • NEVER walk on a lake, pond, or river that appears to be iced over or covered in snow. While it may appear frozen enough to walk on, this is rarely the case. Ice only begins to be "safe" at around 4 - 6 inches thickness, but even at a 9" - 10" of thickness, there can be unforeseen hazards that weaken the underside of the ice. There is no way to determine the thickness of the ice, or determine these unforeseen hazards, with just your eyes.
