With oncoming winter conditions, here are some tips for safe snow shoveling:
TIP #1: Stay on top of the snow. The best advice is to stay ahead of the storm. Prevent snow and ice from adhering to the sidewalk or street by clearing the snow every few inches instead of waiting for the snow to stop falling before you head outdoors.
TIP #2: Wear breathable layers.
TIP #3: Watch your feet.
TIP #4: Take a few minutes to stretch
TIP #5: Push don’t lift.
TIP #6: Drink up! Water that is.
TIP #7: Don’t play in traffic
TIP #8: Call and text. It is important to have your cell phone on you so you can make a call in event of an emergency
