With frigid temperatures on their way, it's important to remember ways to stay safe and healthy when going out.
There are a number of people that come into emergency rooms around this time of year, because of weather-related injuries due to things from falls to frostbite, all of which can be prevented.
It all comes down to being prepared when it gets extremely cold outside.
"Layering is important. The more layers you wear, the better you are insulated. So not just grabbing that single heavy coat and expecting that to handle it. Dressing in thermal underwear, there are some amazing artificial blends now that will retain your heat and yet breathe," says Dr. Shawn Lepley.
Black ice can also be very dangerous. In fact, injuries due to falling are the the number one reason for hospital visits in this kind of weather.
