Snow continues to be safety concern for first-responders
Slipping is not the only way to get hurt
LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) — If you’ve stepped outside the past couple of days, you know it’s important to take it easy.
Snow on sidewalks and driveways can cover up a layer of ice, increasing the risk of a fall.
Slipping is not the only way to get hurt.
“People are gonna be out exerting a lot of energy and if they’re not used to that, we can have other medical calls related to that from being out and being more physically active than they’re used to,” said Onalaska firefighter Cory Taylor.
It is good to take breaks when shoveling.
And if you’re traveling, make sure you leave early and give yourself enough time to make it to your destination safely.
