Weather Warning February / March 2018

Weather warning Tuesday 27th February – Saturday 3rd March 2018

This advice is offered to all service users and members of Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Ireland due to the weather warning currently in place from Met Éireann - https://www.met.ie/nationalwarnings/default.asp

If you are unsure of what steps to take in terms of keeping warm and eating well, please visit the following website for more advice: https://www.winterready.ie/en

If the offices of SBHI have to be closed this week, all staff will still be working from home or an alternative venue during normal office hours (Mon to Fri 9am-1pm and 2pm-5pm). This means that you can still contact staff, including the Family Support Team via their usual contact details: http://www.sbhi.ie/family_support_team SBHI will publish notices if our offices are closed.

If you need to contact a member of staff and are struggling to get through, please call Louise Healy, Respite and Recreation Manager, on 085 711 9087 

The following list has been suggested by SBHI staff to assist where relevant:

  • Be sure to stock up on enough spare water, during the last significant snow fall in Ireland some areas lost their supply for some time
  • Have enough food in the house 
  • Make sure you have enough fuel to keep warm (if you have a heater that requires such fuel)
  • If you need medicines or continence devices, make sure that you have enough to last for a few days
  • If you need assistance in any kind of emergency, please call the emergency services on 999 or 112
