Severe cold grips Prescott-Russell
Un processus plus formel pour récompenser les citoyens Le nouveau Programme de reconnaissance des citoyens a formellement été approuvé par le conseil municipal de Russell récemment. Un processus comprenant des critères de sélec- tion bien établis permettra de sélectionner les citoyens qui recevront les honneurs de la muni- cipalité. Par la passé, le maire décidait des réci- piendaires. Il semblait donc nécessaire selon le maire Pierre Leroux, d’établir un processus plus formel. Ainsi, advenant l’élection d’un nouveau maire, le processus de sélection demeurera indépendant et uniforme. – Caroline Prévost Pet owners should also keep their dogs, cats or other animals inside the house dur- ing an extreme cold situation, or in a heated garage or some other type of warm shelters. If it is too cold for a human to go outside, it is too cold for themalso, in spite of their fur. Anyone driving during the winter should have an emergency road kit inside their vehicle with blankets, extra jumper cables, chocolate bars or other sweets, extra clo- thing, road flares, and small candles and matches. Part of that preparation means remem- bering to dress warmly when outdoors, and wear layered clothing, including a wind- resistant outer coat. Tuques, balaclavas, scarves and well-insulated gloves or mittens are necessary to avoid having skin exposed to the cold. Chemical “hot shot” hand and foot warmers should be kept inside gloves or mittens and boots but remember that the chemical heat provided is temporary. Watch for cold-related symptoms like shortness of breath, chest pain, muscle pain and weakness, numbness or severe aching and colour changes in the fingers and toes. If working outside, take frequent breaks to go indoors and warm up. 40 during the night in some areas of the region. Many common and special outdoor activities scheduled for the end of the year in Eastern Ontario were cancelled because of the extreme cold. A frost bite warning was in effect for al- most all of Eastern Ontario. Residents were advised to remain indoors if at all possible. Health authorities also urged families with small children or members who were el- derly or suffered from chronic illnesses to stay inside and avoid the risk of frost bite and hypothermia, also known as “exposure sickness”. These winter hazards are greater for children and seniors who are outside without proper cold-weather clothing, and also for people whose jobs require them to work outside. Starting the first half of January, win- ter temperatures are expected to become milder, moving back into the single digits during the day for themost part and sinking back tominus 10 or colder during the night. Residents are advised to keep checking with Environment Canada, theWeather Network or other information sites for updates on the long-range winter weather forecast and be ready in case another extreme cold situation results. Starting the first half of January, winter temperatures are expected to become milder, moving back into the single digits during the day for the most part.

Le froid extrême a marqué la fin de l’année 2017 dans l’Est ontarien comme dans d’autres parties du Canada.
