Get set in time for Winter this year with these top tips.
Nannies and parents, with the weather as unpredictable as it it, it is important to be prepared for bad weather conditions that could strike at anytime! Winter often brings with it cold and severe weather conditions so it is always recommended to take precautions.
To Prepare for Winter:
Put together an emergency kit. This should be filled with food, clothing & equipment. Keep this kit safe in a safe place. It is advisable to have a kit for the house and a separate one for the car.
Keep updated with the weather forecast and flood reports. Know what weather is predicted so you can prepare and get supplies in if necessary.
Have an emergency contact ready. Keep a hard copy of an emergency phone number for someone that you know you can call on if needed. It is important to have a hard copy of this in case you are unable to access a device or the internet.
Check workplace and school polices to see if you have a plan in place in case of severe weather. Know who to contact in case you are unable to get in to work or your children are not able to get to school.
