It's slick out there so "Walk like a Penguin"
January 28, 2021
Winter has finally arrived, and in true fashion – slick surfaces are covered by plenty of snow. And whether you are walking in your driveway, on the sidewalk or on the farm doing chores, it's slick out there!
People of all ages fall on slick surfaces and are injured – some fatally - during winter weather.
Nelson Rescue Squad would like to remind you to be careful in these weather conditions. First of all, dress properly. Wear non-slip footwear – preferably with rubber soles. Do not wear leather, plastic or similar footwear that would only make things worse.
Beware of black ice....
