This year people and businesses across Scotland are being encouraged to consider if they are ready for winter and to think about what they can do to make sure they're ready for severe weather or a prolonged icy snap.
Even relatively small disruptions can have serious consequences, but by taking action now we can lessen the impact and all help make Scotland better prepared. There are straight-forward practical steps you can take to reduce the likelihood of disruption occurring and even if a problem did occur, taking simple steps to get ready for winter can lessen the effect on you and speed up the return to normal.
Whether at home, at work, in the community or out on the road, we all need to consider how we - our employees, colleagues, supporters, suppliers, members, service users or customers - could be affected. You can get involved by sharing information, making plans, taking action and by visiting Ready for Winter (new window) for information and advice.
During severe weather we experience high volumes of calls. You can help us to keep our lines free for emergency calls by not telephoning unless it is an emergency. Please email us with non-urgent enquiries. We will update our website and social media sites and provide updates via the eAlert email system.
