Emergency responders and healthcare professionals far and wide would side with the golden rule–plan before you play. Its not only a way to have a good time, it helps with injury prevention and ensures your well being, along with the safety of those around you. With this in mind, before you head out for winter sport recreation or even a snow clearing situation, be sure to follow a few simple rules:
Be Sure To Let Others Know Your Plans ...these include: where, when & what you’ll be doing
Bring A Cell Phone Should An Emergency Arise ...if unable to carry a mobile device, stay in sight of others
Stick To The Rules
...they are in place for a reason - your own safety -plus- the safety of others

Severe snowstorms, even mild flurries, bring about concern over health hazards. Slip-and-falls, exposure to the elements, even shoveling statistically share a fair amount of risk of serious injuries, even death. Nationwide, snow shoveling is responsible for thousands of injuries, and as many as, 100 deaths each year. While most people won't have a problem, shoveling snow can put some at risk of a heart attack. Sudden exertion, like moving pounds of snow after being inactive for several months, can put tremendous strain on the heart. Even pushing a heavy snow blower can also cause harm. Add in the chill factor. Cold weather can increase heart rate and blood pressure. It can make blood clot more easily and constrict arteries; which decreases blood supply. Individuals over the age of 40 or who are relatively inactive should be particularly careful though this is true in healthy people too.
National Safety Council recommends the following to shovel safely: Do not shovel after eating or while smoking Take it slow & stretch out before you begin Shovel only fresh, powdery snow; it's lighter Push the snow rather than lifting it If you lift snow, use a small or only partially full shovel Lift with your legs, not your back Do not work to the point of exhaustion Know the signs of a heart attack, stop immediately & call 911 if you're experiencing any as every minute counts
Pocono Mountain Regional Emergency Medical Services shares facts like these from professionals; though you should always consult your physician for advice before heading out in the ice.
