‘Plan now’ for Extremes of Scottish Winter
The Falkirk Stove Company, one of Scotland’s Leading Wood Burning & Multi-Fuel Stove Retailers.
Are you ready for the cold winter?
The message comes as Transport Minster Keith Brown launches the Ready for Winter campaign.
The new campaign also encourages people to look out for others, especially the more vulnerable.
It includes findings from a survey carried out jointly by the British Red Cross and the Scottish government.
It showed an increase in public preparedness for extreme weather, with most people concerned about power cuts and being cut off from their water supply.
In the past few years, parts of Scotland have been hit by high winds, blizzards and severe sub-zero temperatures.
“As we have seen in Scotland, severe weather can strike quickly and at any time of year. In March, we saw the impact of severe snowstorms on communities in Arran, Kintyre and Dumfries and Galloway.”
