Winter Safety Tips

Winter Safety and Dental Health.Winter Safety Tips

Wearing layers of loose-fitting, lightweight, warm clothing keeps children warmer than a heavy sweater.

Hats and gloves are essential when playing outside in cold weather—the largest portion of body heat is lost through head and hands.

Apply sunscreen on all exposed skin to prevent burns from sunlight and glare from snow.

Remind children to not play near snowplow areas.

To prevent dehydration, keep body replenished with fluids.

Help neighbors who might require assistance.

All fireplaces can pose a potential danger for children—clean out ashes from previous fires and have your chimney checked by a professional once a year.

Never leave a fire unattended.

Fireplace accessories and lighters should be away from a young child’s reach.
