The main objectives of the campaign are:
- To provide practical advice on how best to prepare for the coming winter.
- To ensure the public are aware of where advice and help can be found, if needed, and
- To reassure the public that preparations are being made and arrangements have been put in place to ensure that there will be a coordinated response to severe weather events.
You can follow the campaign on twitter @emergencyIE
The winterready.ie website and the Be Winter-Ready booket give information on being prepared for bad weather, practical advice for coping during episodes of severe weather and the contact details of relevant organisations and agencies.
