The launch of a new ‘Winter Ready’ awareness leaflet by Louth County Council this week is aimed at reminding people across the North East to prepare for unexpected weather events.

The leaflet was prepared on a regional basis jointly by the Local Authorities, An Garda Siochana and the Health Service Executive.

Speaking at the recent Joint Policing Committee in Dundalk, where the leaflet was presented to members, Director of Organisational Development, Joe McGuinness. said it contained vital information that people should take time to read in preparation for the winter months.

“It gives timely guidance on: preparing for the unexpected, the household emergency plan, and ‘What I can do for the community’.”
