Frostbite Prevention


To help prevent frostbite, dress properly when going outside in cold weather. For example:

  • Cover your head, face, hands, and feet adequately.
  • Wear layers of clothing.
  • Wear materials that provide good insulation. It should keep moisture away from the skin. (eg, wool, polyester, polypropylene)
  • Make sure you wear a waterproof outer layer and stay dry.
  • Avoid drinking alcohol when you will be in cold weather.
