Scottish winters can be unpredictable.
The Scottish Government have now launched its 2014/15 Ready for Winter Campaign in partner with the British Red Cross.
Severe weather can strike at any time so taking action now will serve you well in winter, and all year round.
In the last few years, we’ve seen it all – snow, floods and strong winds. And it doesn’t take much for it to impact on our daily lives. Like getting stuck indoors for a few days, or losing your phone communication, power or water supply.
Severe weather can cause a range of problems – but you can be ready for them. By doing a few small things now, you can save yourself a lot of trouble later on.
Why not take their quiz here and see if you would be ready in a winter emergency.
