Severe Weather

Severe weather challenges all of us. Activities that we take for granted can become difficult or even hazardous when severe weather occurs. However, by taking some simple steps to prepare each winter you can reduce the impact of such events. The Government annually launch a Be Winter Ready information campaign, which accompanied by the winter-ready booklet, gives information on being prepared, providing practical advice for coping during episodes of severe weather, as well as giving contact details of organisations and agencies that can provide guidance and assistance. The booklet and website was prepared by the Government Task Force on Emergency Planning and the main message is simple - be prepared, stay safe and know where to find help should you need it.

News Events.

In the event of severe weather occurring updated information will be available on our website and via our Twitter feed which represents the best method of tracking updates. The Council Twitter website can be followed at www.twitter.com/longfordcoco
