Physicians throughout UBMD Physicians’ Group practices warn to prepare for the upcoming storm and take precautions to stay safe.
“Our biggest concern is always that people don’t take a winter weather event like this seriously,” said Brian Clemency, DO, MBA, a physician with UBMD Emergency Medicine’s Division of Emergency Medical Services and a professor at the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University at Buffalo (UB).
Clemency advises that people adhere to the weather reports and news advisories and follow the old adage: better safe than sorry. Some of his tips include:
- Avoiding driving
- Avoid strenuous activity while shoveling or snowblowing
- Dressing for the weather
- Keeping areas clear
