Severe icing on the streets and sidewalks of the city was the cause of many injuries.

Doctors urge the townspeople and residents of the region to take care of themselves and their loved ones, especially during icy conditions:
– wear non-slip shoes without heels;
– try to avoid dangerous, very icy places. If this is not possible, then move on slippery ice in small steps;
– be very careful at the pedestrian crossing: do not rush and in no case run;
– step should be performed with full feet, legs should be relaxed at the knees;
– keep your hands as free as possible, try to carry heavy bags and not keep your hands in your pockets – this increases the likelihood of falling;
– the elderly are advised to use a rubber-tipped cane.
Be safe and sound, take care of yourself and think carefully about the need to leave the house in heavy ice!
