Getting ready for winter

The 2015-16 ‘Be Winter-Ready’ information campaign was launched on 12 November 2015.

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 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.
