How to protect yourself in the cold
According to the official website of capital akimat, in connection with the sharp cold snap Department of emergency reminded of the security measures.
The capital's Department of emergency calls on citizens to be vigilant in the cold and follow simple but effective recommendations.
"Having received the message about the storm warning, warn your relatives and neighbors, as they could not hear about it. In severe frosts, try not to go out, and even more so to go somewhere on personal vehicles", - said in a statement of the DES.
In addition, rescuers told how to protect yourself from frostbite.
"Do not go out in the cold without mittens, hats and scarves. The best option – mittens of moisture-repellent and windproof fabric with fur inside. Gloves made of natural materials, though comfortable, but do not save from the cold. Cheeks and chin can be protected with a scarf. In windy cold weather, before going outside, lubricate the open areas of the body with a special cream. Do not wear metal (including gold, silver) jewelry in the cold", - rescuers warned.
If there was a malfunction in the car away from the village or in an unfamiliar area, noted in the DES, it is better to stay in the cabin, call for help on the phone or wait until another car passes on the road.
In case of an emergency, please call 112.
