The City also would like to remind everyone about the precautions you can take to reduce your risk of frostbite and hypothermia in extreme cold weather. The Texas Department of State Health Services advises:

  • Wear several layers of loose-fitting clothing, mittens, a hat and a face cover when outdoors.
  • Stay dry.
  • Be extra cautious in the wind. A strong wind, even in only moderately cold weather, can cause a wind chill far below freezing.
  • At the first signs of possible frostbite – redness or pain in any skin area – get out of the cold or protect any exposed skin.
  • Watch for hypothermia symptoms.
    • Confusion, drowsiness, slurred speech, a drop in blood pressure, shallow breathing and a pinkish tint to the skin.
    • Anyone with hypothermia symptoms is in immediate danger and should receive medical help right away.
  • Check on elderly or sick people, especially if they live alone or in isolated areas.
