Winter information and advice
Winter weather can be severe and can quickly disrupt our daily lives. Being aware and better prepared can help us, our families and our communities to stay safe, warm and healthy throughout the winter months.
Getting ready for winter can help minimise interruption in our everyday lives both at home, and when we are out and about. Even doing one or two simple things now could help save you time and money. Preparation now can also help you stay healthy and avoid becoming unwell.
These pages contain helpful information, links and answers to some of your questions about preparing for winter and how East Ayrshire Council will respond during severe weather.
