With winter fast approaching, it’s time to get ready!
This year everyone across Scotland is being encouraged to take an hour now to get ready and prepare for all kinds of severe weather. The reality is that extreme weather can occur at any time of year, but is most likely during the winter months. Whether at home, in the community or on the move, we all need to consider the risks and consequences of severe weather and how we - and the people we live and work with - could be affected. Don’t wait until it happens – instead take an hour to prepare now and you could save yourself a lot of trouble later.
