Cumbria County Council is ready for winter, are you?

Cumbria County Council continues to support the county’s residents and businesses during the coming months with their ‘winter ready’ campaign. This year’s campaign will reflect the ongoing Coronavirus public health information and guidance, as well as winter travel and weather preparations.

A wide range of information about winter-related items is available on County Council’s webpage: Winter Ready 2021.

The campaign will continue to include a programme of social media activity helping to ensure that people are kept up to date with all the latest winter advice and information.

Winter Ready 2021 seeks to ensure people have the right information, advice and guidance at their fingertips. It has been developed, and is supported by a wide range of partners, including Cumbria County Council, Cumbria’s six district councils, NHS, Cumbria Community Foundation and the Environment Agency.

The campaign provides advice and assistance on everything you need to know to help you be prepared and to get winter ready, including:

  • The latest information, guidance and support available to people regarding Coronavirus.
  • Emergency planning - advice on how to protect your home from flooding and find out if you are at risk.
  • Winter travel - how to stay safe, keep up to date with road and weather information and make sure your vehicle is ready for winter.
  • General health advice - staying well this winter.

Councillor Keith Little, Cumbria County Council’s Cabinet member for Highways and Transport, said:

 “In recent years we have seen severe winter weather impact on communities in Cumbria. It is important we take some simple steps to prepare for Winter - from getting a flu or a Covid booster jab, to checking over your vehicle.

“Cumbria County Council is prepared and ready to respond, whatever the weather throws at us this winter.  The dedicated Winter Ready web pages are a one-stop platform with links and handy tips and advice to help all of Cumbria’s residents, businesses and visitors.”

Cllr Deborah Earl, the county council’s Cabinet member for Public Health and Community Services, said:

“I’m pleased to be involved in the important Winter Ready campaign again this year. Ensuring that our communities have all of the most up to date and accessible information in one place, which helps to provide people with all of the advice and guidance they need to get through the winter months.”
