Cold Stress - Extreme cold weather is a dangerous situation that can bring on health emergencies in susceptible people, such as those without shelter, outdoor workers, and those who work in an area that is poorly insulated or without heat.

From the Longwoods Archives

Ice Storm: A Crisis Management Diary - During the ice storm of January 1999 which ravaged parts of Ontario and Quebec, senior managers at Brockville Psychiatric Hospital learned invaluable lessons for dealing with an unprecedented crisis. By the end of the storm, the biggest and longest-lasting natural disaster in Canadian history, the hospital would house more than 400 guests in need of shelter, provide accommodation and meals to more than 300 military personnel, meals to 50 Ontario Hydro workers, and shower facilities to an additional 150 military personnel.
