Be Winter Ready 2022

On November 10th, the government launched the ‘Be Winter-Ready’ 2022 -2023 Information Campaign.

The ‘Be Winter-Ready’ campaign, which is in its twelfth year, is intended to raise awareness about the particular challenges that winter can present and provides coordinated and cross-cutting approach to public safety messaging and the dissemination of information on winter preparations.

This information campaign is now a well-established and important annual event impacting across the whole public service.

The campaign highlights the ‘whole-of-government’ approach being taken to winter preparations. This sort of approach was seen during recent storms and severe weather events that occurred over the past number of years which posed challenges for individuals, communities, businesses, government departments and agencies.

Importantly, the ‘Be Winter-Ready’ campaign informs the public of what is being done in relation to winter preparations and where they can source valuable information that can assist them through a difficult period.

Through the dedicated website (which you can view by clicking here), advice is being made available from a wide number of sources including government departments and agencies, An Garda Síochána, the Health Service Executive, the Office of Public Works, Local Authorities and the transport providers.

The advice has been categorised under various headings including: the Home, Road Safety, Schools, the Farming Community and the Business Sector. A synopsis of the information available has been compiled into an updated “Be Winter Ready” booklet, which can be read via the button below.
