Hypothermia advice card, England, 1994-1995
This hypothermia advice card was given out by Eastern Electricity to their elderly customers. Hypothermia is caused by exposure to low temperatures for long periods of time when a person is physically exhausted. Exhaustion may be caused by the body shivering to create warmth. Elderly people are more at risk, and many die from, hypothermia in the winter months as they may not be able to afford to heat their homes. The thermometer gives people an indication of when to turn up their heating and offers other useful advice on wearing layers of clothing, consuming hot foods and drinks and trying to eliminate draughts from the house. maker: Eastern Electricity Place made: London, Greater London, England, United Kingdom
