Winters in Buffalo can be bitter, but there is a wealth of cold weather resources we can all lean on to keep ourselves and our community safe!

Winter Weather & Extreme Cold Resources

Protect yourself, your pets & your family during winter weather conditions.  Taking preventative action is your best defense against extreme cold.

Health Effects

Your personal health and safety can be in jeopardy during extreme winter cold. When temperatures drop and as wind speed increases, heat can leave your body quickly and can lead to serious health problems. Problems such as Hypothermia, Frostbite, Heart Disease and Carbon Monoxide Poisoning can happen.  If you are experiencing symptoms of any of these call 911 Immediately.
