Survival Tips During Winter

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Surviving the freezing temperature that winter brings is not as easy as it sounds. And keeping ourselves warm is not just enough. Below are some tips and tricks on how we can survive winter when faced with these 2 scenarios.


1. During a storm:

  • If it’s not important, avoid going out for a drive. But make sure to keep the gas tank of your car full to avoid fuel line freezing.
  • Always keep yourself dry. Change wet clothing to avoid body heat loss, frostbite, and hypothermia.
  • Always cover your mouth to protect your lungs from the extreme cold air.
  • Always listen to the latest weather report for important information.
  • Keep yourself warm. Wearing several layers of clothes as well as mittens and hats will do the trick.
  • Keep yourself hydrated and also eat regularly. Avoid drinking alcohol and caffeine.

2. During a blizzard:

  • Drive only if it is absolutely necessary and do not go out alone. Also, travel only during the day.
  • Avoid taking road shortcuts. Instead, stay on main roads and highways.
  • If you are trapped in your car because of the blizzard, do not panic. These are the things you need to do.
    • Pull of the highway and turn on your hazard lights.
    • Remain inside your car.
    • Only set out on foot if there is a building close to your location.
    • Every hour, run your engine for at least 10 minutes or so to keep you warm. Open one of your car’s windows slightly for ventilation.
    • Use anything in your car to insulate yourself against the cold.
    • Drink fluids to avoid dehydration.
    • Do not waste your battery. Turn on your inside light at night only when you hear rescuers nearby.
    • Leave your car and look for help once the blizzard passes.
    • Always keep an emergency car kit in your car for your survival needs.

These are just some tips on how we can survive the winter if we are faced with these conditions. If you have other tips or suggestions that you want to share, just do so in the comment section below.
