NYC – Extreme Cold Weather Alert – issued December 26, 2017

Provided by the NYC Office of Emergency Management

Notification issued 12/26/17 at 1:35 PM. New York City Emergency Management urges New Yorkers to prepare for upcoming extreme cold weather. Expect bitterly cold temperatures and wind chills through the week.

New Yorkers are encouraged to stay indoors as much as possible. When outdoors, be sure to wear dry, warm clothing and cover exposed skin. Check on your neighbors, friends, and relatives, especially the elderly and those with disabilities, and access and functional needs during periods of extreme cold. People most likely to be exposed to dangerous cold include those who lack shelter, work outdoors and/or live in homes with malfunctioning or inadequate heat. Seniors, infants, people with chronic cardiovascular or lung conditions, people using alcohol or drugs, and people with cognitive impairments (like dementia, serious mental illness or developmental disability) are at increased risk.

Health problems resulting from prolonged exposure to cold include hypothermia, frostbite, and exacerbation of chronic heart and lung conditions. If you suspect a person is suffering from frostbite or hypothermia, call 9-1-1 to get medical help.
