The recent cold snap has health officials reminding of the dangers of the frigid weather.
It only takes thirty minutes for exposed skin to get frostbite, according to Marshfield Medical Center. That’s why it’s important to wear gloves, a scarf, and a warm hat.
Pet owners are reminded that animals are also susceptible to frostbite. Anyone who sees a person or animal suffering from the cold, should call 9-1-1 immediately.
