Dressing for Cold Weather Infographic

Colder temperatures are on the way if they’re not already upon you! With that in mind, the Oklahoma State Department of Health would like to remind everyone to be safe and keep warm this winter. Additionally, take proper precautions and ensure your family is prepared in the event of a major winter weather event.

For adults 65 and older and for babies, it’s very important to monitor the temperature of a house. Infants lose body heat more easily than adults and can’t produce body heat, and older adults produce less body heat.

Also, use caution when heating your home with a woodstove, fireplace or space heater—install a carbon monoxide detector to know if your house has reached dangerous carbon monoxide levels.

OSDH has also created a “Dressing for Cold Weather” infographic to help individuals know what to wear outside at what temperatures.

To read more tips for preparing for the cold weather, please visit the Oklahoma State Department of Health’s website.
