BE MINDFUL OF SLIPPERY RAMPS AND STAIRWAYSRamps and stairways can lead to dangerous slip and fall injuries. Be mindful when walking up or down these areas. As a safety precaution, always hold the hand rail for extra support and balance, and try to walk only on areas that have been covered with rock salt.
BE PREPARED FOR BLACK ICEBe prepared to take control of your vehicle when driving in conditions where black ice may be present. Black ice is a transparent coating of ice most commonly formed on roads that do not drain properly, where standing water turns to ice in freezing conditions. Because it’s not easily visible, it can be difficult to avoid. Driving over black ice can lead to an accident, which is why it’s critical to be aware of your surroundings and in control of your vehicle at all times.
WATCH OUT FOR FALLING ICICLESIcicles can fall from buildings, rooftops, trees and other structures and are often considered a hidden danger because they often are not in our direct field of vision. It’s important to remember that icicles form in freezing conditions and can cause injuries and/or damage when falling. Be careful when walking under areas with icicles, and watch for overarching trees and powerlines covered in icicles, too, while driving.
