The Government has launched the ‘Be Winter-Ready’ Information Campaign for 2022-2023.

The ‘Be Winter-Ready’ campaign is intended to raise awareness about the challenges that winter can present and provides public safety messaging and information on winter preparations. The focused message of this year’s ‘Be Winter-Ready’ campaign is ‘Guidance on Flooding.’

The campaign was jointly launched by Patrick O’Donovan T.D, Minister of State with responsibility for the Office of Public Works, and Minister of State at the Department of Transport with special responsibility for International and Road Transport and Logistics, Hildegarde Naughton T.D. Also present was Evelyn Cusack, Head of Forecasting at Met Éireann.

Minister Patrick O’Donovan broke down the campaign, stating that the main message is to “be prepared, stay safe and know where to find help if you need it.”

Minister Hildegard Naughton added that the campaign provides “an opportunity to consider what we can do, both individually and collectively, to prepare for the challenges and risks the winter months can present and to make our communities resilient.” See
