Winter weather can be a killer in Minnesota – literally. Each year, adults and children in our state suffer injuries or death because they aren't aware of essential winter safety practices.
November 9-13 is Winter Hazard Awareness Week, a week to raise awareness about the dangers you could encounter in the winter and what you can do to protect yourself.
The Minnesota Department of Public Safety, together with health and safety agencies across the state, has created a website with information about ways to prevent injury or death because of winter weather.
Log on to www.winterweather.state.mn.us and learn about driving in the snow, fire safety, indoor air safety, what to do if stranded in a winter storm and other topics.
