Winter Safety Tips

Here are some winter safety tips.  Avoid slipping on ice by wearing shoes or boots that have good traction and non-skid soles.  Icy falls can cause major injuries to your hip, wrists and head.  Dress properly for warmth.  Dress in clothing layers, wear thick socks, a hat, gloves and use a scarf to cover your mouth to protect your lungs.  Fight wintertime depression.  Let the sun shine in- literally.  Stay in touch with family and friends.  Have your car serviced before freezing weather sets in.  Have the oil changed and all fluids topped off, get the battery checked and get new wipers installed.  Prepare for power outages.  Make sure you have a battery-powered radio, flashlights and a hidden supply of non-perishable food and plenty of water.  Wear layers of clothing and even wear a hat indoors until the power and heat come back on and move around to raise your body temperature.  Because we spend more time indoors in the winter, people tend to eat a smaller variety of foods. make sure to eat a varied diet that includes vitamin D milk, more grains and seafood such as tuna and salmon along with fruits and winter vegetables such as squash and sweet potatoes.  De Hart Plumbing, serving Manhattan Kansas, Junction City Kansas and Wamego Kansas.wpid-Screenshot_2013-09-27-22-19-50-1.png
