Tips to Keep Kids Safe, Warm During Winter
Date:1/19/2013

t as warm as possible to avoid frostbite.
  • Take breaks. Make sure kids come inside periodically so they can warm up.
  • Once inside, children should immediately remove wet clothing and warm up.
  • Hypothermia signs parents should look out for in their children include the following:

    • Shivering
    • Pallor or looking pale
    • Bluish and cold hands, feet, nose or ears

    In extreme cases of hypothermia, Pangan noted children may experience drowsiness, slurred speech or confusion.

    "If a child exhibits these more serious symptoms, get them inside immediately, out of wet clothes and into warm, dry clothes. Wrap the child in a blanket and call 911 immediately," advised Pangan.

    Frostbite can also develop quickly, particularly on the fingers, toes, ears and nose, he said. Parents should look for the following symptoms of the condition:

    • White or gray skin
    • Blisters
    • Skin that feels numb or burns

    Parents or caregivers who suspects frostbite should immediately bring the child inside and call 911. The affected area should be placed in warm (not hot) water. The skin should not be rubbed to prevent damage. The child should also be given something warm to drink.

    "Winter can be a great time to get outside and have fun. Just remember, kids are not small adults. They respond differently to the elements than we do and parents need to take that into consideration before they head out the door," Pangan concluded.
