Walk Safe This Winter

Although we don’t have any control over the weather, we can use common-sense to prepare and stay safe. Here are five strategies everyone can use to stay safe when walking this winter.


  1. Walk slowly and deliberately and wear boots or other slip-resistant footwear.
  2. Keep walkways clear by shoveling snow or scrapping ice.
  3. Use extra caution when getting in and out of vehicles.
  4. Watch for slippery floors when entering buildings.
  5. Keep hands empty so your arms are free to move for stabilization. Try using a backpack when possible.
