Be Winter Ready

09 November 2016

We are all advised to Be Winter Ready

The Office of Emergency Planning, working with Government and State agencies - including Iarnród Éireann - are advising all of us to 'Be Winter Ready' this year.

Severe weather challenges all of us. Activities that we take for granted can become difficult or even hazardous when severe weather occurs. However, by taking some simple steps you can reduce the impact of such events.

The 'Be Winter Ready' information campaign has produced a booklet which gives information on being prepared, providing practical advice for coping during episodes of severe weather, as well as giving contact details of organisations and agencies that can provide guidance and assistance.

The main message is simple - be prepared, stay safe and know where to find help should you need it.

English and Irish versions of the booklet are available below;
