The Office of Emergency Planning launched a public information Be Winter Ready campaign on 9 November 2016 similar to the campaign run last year. The campaign is supported by a website www.winterready.ie and a booklet (PDF format) which includes useful information and safety tips. In addition, this year’s campaign has a special focus on flooding and includes a new information leaflet on flooding that contains practical advice for householders in the event that flooding occurs.
Advice to the public is also available via a twitter account and the Office of Emergency Planning will be tweeting during the winter period to augment the ‘Be Winter Ready’ campaign. The twitter account can be followed on @emergencyIE and the public are being encouraged to join in the conversation at #bewinterready.
