Severe Weather and Emergency Management for Winter 2012/13

Severe weather challenges all of us. Activities that we take for granted can become difficult or even hazardous when severe weather occurs. However, by taking some simple steps you can reduce the impact of such events.

This winter-ready booklet gives information on being prepared, providing practical advice for coping during episodes of severe weather, as well as giving contact details of organisations and agencies that can provide guidance and assistance. The booklet was prepared by the Government Task Force on Emergency Planning.

A Kerry Alerts website is specially designed to inform you of any emergency alerts or warnings particularly concerning severe weather affecting Kerry citizens. Kerry County Council uses information from its roads, water and other departments to provide updates. The alerts site also contains advice and links to other useful websites
