Take an hour to get ready for winter and all kinds of severe
We can't be sure what weather Scotland will see over the winter
period right now. But the campaign reminds people that 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. Just one hour can make a big difference, and you'll be
glad you made the effort. By doing a few small things now, you can
save yourself a lot of trouble later on.
You can also do your bit to help out in your community. Watch this
