ST. CLOUD – Winter Hazard Awareness Week continues today (Tuesday) with the topic of outdoor winter safety.

Minnesotans spend about as much time outside in the winter as they do in the summer. The Minnesota Department of Public Safety advises you to take caution when you’re going about your winter outdoor activities.

There is no sure answer to tell if ice is safe or not. The Minnesota Department of Public Safety says you can’t judge the strength of ice by its appearence. New ice is often stronger than old ice.

They advise you to keep your children safe in the winter by keeping them off of ice without adult supervision, and keep your child away from streets and snowplows.

Shoveling can be a good source of exercise in the winter. However, adults with heart and other health conditions are asked to be cautious of their limitations.
