Be cautious when walking on ice…

*In cold temperatures, assume areas on pavements are slippery and icy. There could be a invisible layer of ice that can look like a wet spot on the pavement.
*Walk in designated walkways as much as possible.
*Taking shortcuts through areas where snow and ice removal is not feasible can be hazardous.
*Bend slightly and walk flat-footed with your center of gravity directly over the feet as much as possible.
*Extend your arms out to your sides to maintain balance. If you are carrying items, try not to carry too much; leave your hands and arms free to balance yourself.
*Keep your hands out of your pockets. You can help break your fall with your hands free if you do start to slip.
*When walking on steps always use the hand railings and plant your feet firmly on each step.
*Use special care when entering and exiting vehicles; use the vehicle for support.
