How to Dress for Cold & Wet Winter Weather to Stay Warm & Healthy!

Dressing properly for wet winter weather can help you and your family stay healthy. Keep these tips in mind!

  • Dress in layers, so if a sweater, pair of socks or other article of clothing gets wet, you can quickly remove it and still be protected. 
  • Wear a hat, gloves or mittens and proper footwear, including socks and boots. 
  • Cover your ears and the top of your head with a snug hat and stay dry. 
  • Wet socks are especially dangerous and can lead to a condition called trench foot, which results in poor blood circulation, tissue decay, infections and even amputation. Make sure to dry off your feet immediately after being outside in cold weather.
